Roger Reeves is the author of King Me and Best Barbarian, winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize and the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award. His essays have appeared in Granta, the Yale Review, and elsewhere. Reeves’s Dark Days: Fugitive Essays is a crucial book that calls for community, solidarity, and joy, even in—especially in—these dark days. Vulture recently called it “stunning” and applauded how it “captures the sorrows inherent in the way we live today even while keeping a keen eye toward opportunity for joy.” He is the recipient of a Whiting Award and teaches at the University of Texas at Austin.
