A companion piece to the poet and artist’s gorgeous and powerful PULLMAN (Grid Books, 2023), A DOMESTIC LOOKBOOK likewise examines themes of labor and love by writing in conversation with the text of Malinda Russell’s A Domestic Cook Book, the first known cookbook published by a Black woman in the United States. In poetic call and response, the poems and art pieces in this collection reflect on a brutal history, attempting to counteract violent acts with creative output. As the poet herself puts it, “each act of making thwarts violence’s aim to destroy.”
