There Are More Beautiful Things Than BeyoncéBook - 2017
From Library Staff
A collection of poems using pop culture icons, jazz rhythms, and hip-hop references to examine femininity, race, and politics. Parker plays her words as deftly as Miles plays trumpet.
Pop-influenced collection written in a unique vernacular, a favorite from last year.

I will admit that I don't read a lot of poetry, but it didn't take me long to recognize the quality of the written words on each page of Morgan Parker's book. Beautiful and thoughtful, each poem in this short book is worth your time and effort.
