In his latest collection of poems, The Tradition (2019), Jericho Brown, who grew up in Louisiana, writes about the ambivalence of living in a country characterised by mass shootings and violent attacks on unarmed people by the police. In his poems, the body forms a place of refuge for living and surviving. At the heart of The New Testament (2014) Brown looks at what it is like living in the USA today as a black gay man. The collection won him the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award and was listed by the Library Journal, Coldfront and the Academy of American Poets as one of the best books of the year. His first collection of poems, Please, won the American Book Award in 2009.
