    Author and essayist Kiese Laymon is one of the most unique, stirring, and powerful new voices in American social and cultural commentary. How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America is a collection of Laymon's essays, touching on subjects ranging from family, race, violence, and celebrity to music, writing, and coming of age in the rural Mississippi Gulf Coast. Laymon's writing is unflinchingly honest, while also being smart, lacerating, and unexpectedly funny.

    Long Division contains two interwoven stories. In the first, it's 2013: After an on-stage meltdown during a nationally televised quiz contest, fourteen-year-old Citoyen "City" Coldson becomes an overnight YouTube celebrity. The next day, he's sent to stay with his grandmother in the small coastal community of Melahatchie, where a young girl named Baize Shephard has recently disappeared.

    From navigating the oft competing worlds of religion and desire to balancing society's expectations with the raw experience of being a woman in the world; from detailing the experiences of growing up as a first-generation black British woman to working through situations of dependence and abuse; from finding solace in the echoing caverns of depression and loss to exploring the vulnerability and redemption in falling in love, each of the raw and immediate poems in Daley-Ward's Bone resonate to the core of what it means to be human.
