The Days of Good Looks: The Prose and Poetry of Cheryl Clarke, 1980 to 2005

Lauded by luminaries such as Gwendolyn Brooks, Adrienne Rich, and Joy Harjo, among others, the work of African American lesbian poet Cheryl Clarke has spoken on behalf of the black, feminist and gay movements for more than 25 years. Her writing has earned her distinction as a contemporary black feminist icon in the tradition of June Jordan. In fact, few writers have tackled hot-button issues of race and sexuality with as much force or fearless humor as Clarke. The Days of Good Looks — her first new book of poetry in a decade — collects the author's most popular poems and essays along with an array of new unpublished writing.
