Poetry & Drama • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Danez Smith IS spoken-word art! This gender-neutral National Book Award finalist is full of funk and flavor, and is fearless in delivering personal poetic narratives. Smith opens by discussing why their audiobook is called HOMIE. This work is definitely not for the faint of heart. It wakes you up. Smith speaks of identity through experiences addressing race, queerness, upbringing, family, friendship, disparity, and joy, never mincing words. Smith has a consistent cadence that sings to the listener. A few poems play with pace and pronunciation. Some poems are high-spirited, while others are painful and throw a punch to the gut. The narration is impactful, vibrant, in-your-face, and authentically Danez Smith. T.E.C. 2021 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
