About-

A collection that alternates between celebration and lament, Winnower traces the experiences of an American poet growing up in war-torn Chad, Africa.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Like the bent, laboring woman in his opening poem, Brown's poems sift memories in search of the 'ripeness of belonging,' and a land 'not fully mine but more of me than anywhere else.' As he says with a kind of bardic authority that is startling and thrilling for his young age, 'We must draw deeper from the old life.' Readers will find much to draw from here, a poetic sustenance both old in spirit and vitally new in voice."
--Brett Foster, author of The Garbage Eater

"Winnower is a work of ultimate meaning, a gathering of poems that serve as a bulwark against the harm and hate that ravages the war-torn, the dispossessed, and the common seekers of a new world. These poems breathe with vitality and necessity, lyrical beauty, and concrete power. . . . In the midst of the desert of our inhumanity, Winnower foresees an oasis of love and belief 'where all who wanted rest would come.'"
--Shann Ray, author of American Masculine and Balefire
