Vivek Shraya's debut collection of poetry is a bold and timely interrogation of skin—its origins, functions, and limitations. Poems that range in style from starkly concrete to limber break down the barriers that prevent understanding of what it means to be racialized. Shraya paints the face of everyday racism with words, rendering it visible, tangible and undeniable. Vivek Shraya is a writer, musician, and filmmaker whose previous books include God Loves Hair and She of the Mountains . She lives in Toronto.

So so good. A book of poetry, thoughts, and interviews on race. It's small and full of white space, but it is saturated and full. A must read, really.

Vivek Shraya is a writer and performance artist who was first nominated for a 2011 Lambda Literary Award for God Loves Hair. Shraya's newest effort, even this page is white, powerfully explores race, identity, gender and sexuality. True to her roots, the poems have a rhythm and a flow that feel like they would work well at performance pieces. That being said, though, reading them on the page is no less affecting!
