Kevin Young at the Nantucket Book Festival

“Reading through Kevin Young’s Blue Laws: Selected & Uncollected Poems, 1995 to 2015, I found myself remembering my days as a music nerd–obsessively on the hunt for a rare bootleg released only in Japan or some soundboard recording of a band’s final concert. Blue Laws feels like an equally rare artifact, both a collection of greatest hits and B-sides, and a great exploration into the poet’s back catalog.”
