Danez Smith is our president Homie is Danez Smith’s magnificent anthem about the saving grace of friendship. Rooted in the loss of one of Smith’s close friends, this book comes out of the search for joy and intimacy within a nation where both can seem scarce and getting scarcer. In poems of rare power and generosity, Smith acknowledges that in a country overrun by violence, xenophobia, and disparity, and in a body defined by race, queerness, and diagnosis, it can be hard to survive, even harder to remember reasons for living. But then the phone lights up, or a shout comes up to the window, and family—blood and chosen—arrives with just the right food and some redemption. Part friendship diary, part bright elegy, part war cry, Homie is the exuberant new book written for Danez and for Danez’s friends and for you and for yours.
My Califa’s Rehab Rangers booking number is YA-65544; I will never forget it. This is a first-hand narration of growing in the 1980’s and 1990’s around criminally infested streets of Los Diablos County, Califas. This autobiography describes a gang initiation, drug involvement, and twenty years of arrests for various low-level non-violent crimes. It is an adventurous entourage through police precincts and juvenile hall institutions leading to Los Diablos’ dreadful Twin Titans Corrective Facilities, including Califa’s Rehab Rangers. Eventually, we will visit the ever-controversial Immigration and Child Endowments’ holding camps tossing out legal and illegal immigrants with lifetime deportations ignoring all American-raised families. Part memoir, part inspiration—total human institutionalization and dehumanization, uncut. In addition, we will explore human life complexities within today’s state-of-the-art prisons and we will see men coping for survival with only their essential necessities to strive. Moreover, questions will abound about our innate free will, that is, are we indeed free from Big Brother? Is the separation of migrant families legal? This story may also serve as an academic reference to our technical legality of incarceration—and once inside, what are our constitutions protecting prisoners’ rights, or should they have any legal protections whatsoever. Indeed, we are forever cognizant that not everything under our sun is a ray of hope for every man; therefore, our daily challenge is to withhold those glorious constitutions that grant us universal liberty of choice. At our day’s end, literature is mind’s liberty.
It's time to go back to the barrio with the Homies! The pop culture phenomenon that took the 1990s by storm returns with brand-new hijinks co-plotted by the creator of Homies himself, David Gonzales. In Barrio Quién Sabé, the entire community is one big familia, laughter and good times are the perfect cure for reality, and the Homies love their lowriders like they love their ladies: painted, sexy, curvy, and dressed to kill. Follow the colorful, oddball characters in four wild adventures: the wedding of Gata to would-be bachelor-for-life Hollywood, a charity match of rival luchadores to save the neighborhood community center, the haunting of the Mexican legend La Llorona, and the arrival of an illegal alien... of the extraterrestrial kind! Welcome to East Los Angeles, esé!

Using the tools of sociological theory, Robert Brenneman seeks to discover why a pot-smoking, gun-wielding "homie" gang member would want to trade in la vida loca for a Bible and the buttoned-down lifestyle of an evangelical hermano (brother in Christ) - and to what extent this strategy works for the many youth who have tried it.
The highly anticipated second collection by Danez Smith—“Hallelujah is an understatement” (Patricia Smith) Award-winning poet Danez Smith is a groundbreaking force, celebrated for deft lyrics, urgent subjects, and performative power. Don’t Call Us Dead opens with a heartrending sequence that imagines an afterlife for black men shot by police, a place where suspicion, violence, and grief are forgotten and replaced with the safety, love, and longevity they deserved here on earth. Smith turns then to desire, mortality—the dangers experienced in skin and body and blood—and a diagnosis of HIV positive. “Some of us are killed / in pieces,” Smith writes, “some of us all at once.” Don’t Call Us Dead is an astonishing and ambitious collection, one that confronts, praises, and rebukes America—“Dear White America”—where every day is too often a funeral and not often enough a miracle.

Finalist, Norma Farber First Book Award, Poetry Society of America. "The poems of [INSERT] BOY have need of the body—desire it and lament its mortality—but over and again they assert Smith's seemingly religious belief that every sound the body makes, every word and wail, is only possible through connection to some other plane of existence. This is a lovely, voice-driven book, singing high notes sharp as a switchblade."—Jericho Brown "Danez Smith lays down the gauntlet for all of us to speak our deepest truths with more elegance, more ferocity, and almost more beauty than a reader can bear."—Gabrielle Calvocoressi
