Coming into this book, I expected, from previous experience with Ross Gay's work, the lyricism, the intricate lexical play, and the overwhelming longing for justice. I didn't expect the darkness or the storytelling, which is richer and deeper than I've seen in a poetry collection in quite a while.
Favorite poems: both versions of the title poem, "American Dreaming," "Isaac," "Love, Here's the Deal," and "Ode to the Redbud."

Rich and delicious and kind. Favorites: "Spoon," "To the Fig Tree on 9th and Christian", "Ode to buttoning and Unbuttoning my Shirt", "Ode to Drinking Water From My Hands", "Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude."

It seems rare for poetry collections to encompass both brutality and tenderness so well. Ross Gay's poetry is a journey through every emotion and a class in itself on description.
