There Are No Names for Red (Paperback)

,

Chris Abani's Dog Woman is a mesmerizing, haunting, and sometimes subversive exploration of the
personal and cultural politics of disempowerment and power. In these heart rousing and lyrically
complex poems, the poet enacts the reconstruction of his feminized selves, and his personae struggle
to re-form and transform both themselves and the difficult worlds they inhabit. At turns, earthy,
enigmatic, devout, outraged, and compassionate, these elemental women's voices ring true, as they
sing siren songs, dirges, and hosannas, and as they navigate into new and unknown territories of
human will and endurance. Dog Woman is a daring, trailblazing, and important book; it's a vital
addition to the poetry of our times.
