Top 10 ALA Over the Rainbow Title! When the Only Light Is Fire by Saeed Jones
Included on the American Library Association's OVER THE RAINBOW list of recommended LGBT reading for 2013 -- In his debut chapbook of poetry, Saeed Jones walks on the periphery of the South, those places on the outskirts of town, in bars after midnight, and on dangerous backroads where most people keep their heads down or look the other way. Through Texas and Tennessee, Alabama and the riverbeds of the Mississippi, these poems wrap themselves in cloaks of masks and comfort; garments we learn are flammable if we stand too close to flames.
