Book Review — Other People’s Comfort Keeps Me Up At Night by Morgan Parker

Rating: 4/5

Genre: Poetry

Morgan Parker’s Other People’s Comfort Keeps Me Up At Night is being reprinted! This is the first collection of the author’s. Her other notable works are There are More Beautiful Things than Beyoncé and Magical Negro. This version has a new forward by Danez Smith, where he sings nothing but well-deserved, high praises of Parker.

Stylistically, these poems have a flow to them as the poet draws inspiration from rappers such as Jay-Z. At the heart of the poems are the trappings of a young Black girl navigating space with a slew of millennial pop culture references. These poems are as fun as they are breathtaking. An incredibly impressive set of debut poems that I’m so glad is going out into the world again.
