Black Maria - Young, Kevin

Kevin Young follows his acclaimed exploration of the blues in "Jelly Roll" with another playful riff on a vital art form, giving readers a film noir in verse. Charming, funky, bleak, humorous, picaresque, and full of pathos, "Black Maria" is brimming with originality and stark lyricism.
