God Is Not An American (Paperback)

God Is Not An American Cover Image
Special Order


jessica Care moore writes that she writes to remind herself that she is a writer. Yet her writing has always leaped from the page like a healthy compulsion. To read her work is to understand that there are writer's who do so for their very survival; to cope, to process, to keep from killing. (To see her perform her work is another experience altogether---her powerful, sometimes rapid delivery can feel like a shower of bombs). She writes about the poet's diary as a time capsule for others to find and rewind, imagining that she may one day be torn from her page but with jessica there is no distance between who she is and her page, her work. Any future excavation of her work would likely summon her fire-throwing ghost itself. She breathes and bleeds for her poems, and we are all made anew by her sacrifice.
