Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah free pdf Winner of 2013 Wheatley Book Award in Poetry Finalist for 2013 William Carlos Williams Award Winner of 2014 Bobbitt National Prize for Poetry "Patricia Smith is writing some of the best poetry in America today. Ms Smith's new book, Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah, is just beautiful--and like the America she embodies and represents--dangerously beautiful. Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah is a stunning and transcendent work of art, despite, and perhaps because of, its pain. This book shines." --Sapphire "One of the best poets around and has been for a long time." --Terrance Hayes "Smith's work is direct, colloquial, inclusive, adventuresome." --Gwendolyn Brooks In her newest collection, Patricia Smith explores the second wave of the Great Migration. Shifting from spoken word to free verse to traditional forms, she reveals "that soul beneath the vinyl." Patricia Smith is the author of five volumes of poetry, including Blood Dazzler, a finalist for the 2008 National Book Award, and Teahouse of the Almighty, a National Poetry Series selection. She lives in New Jersey.
