Recommended by Rich Smith

He won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for poetry and boy, did he deserve it. Stranger Genius Award nominees Wave Books (they're also local, guys!) published his winning book, Olio, which explores, embodies, and thinks through the early origins of black music in America. If you have not checked out this book, you must. Jess is doing shit with the page that I have never seen before in my life—writing poems you have to rip out of the book and roll into a tube in order to read, and writing mirroring ghazals that actually read forwards and backwards, just to name a few.
