I had a great time speaking with Ethelbert Miller on WPFW’s ON THE MARGIN. We laughed a lot, talked about fatherhood and poetry, the times we’re living in, and more! Listen to the recording.
Serena Agusto-Cox reviewed Poitn Blank for SavvyVerseandWit.com! Here’s an excerpt from her review:
With “point blank” precision, [Alan] King tackles issues of race, poverty, stereotyping, and uncontrolled anger. His poems often begin with stereotypes of race and as the poem unfolds, he teaches his readers to see how ridiculous those generalizations can be. In “Swarm,” he asks, “That’s when I wonder/if Insecurity’s the biggest instigator./The one constantly egging you on/to prove yourself.”
