This is a young book, inasmuch as rock n' roll belongs yet to the young. Huffman's poems enact a sweet mojo on the youthful territory of the hometown, of the high school, of the TV-watching-music-listening experience, where "Rehabilitation of/ the burned parent// in a rowboat/ a knock-kneed// the mind tries/ to find speaking[.]" 

Author Jibade-Khalil Huffman was born in Detroit and grew up in Florida. His awards include the Grolier Poetry Prize. A graduate of Bard College and Brown University, he lives in New York. Paperback, 117 pages.
