    Paperback Description:

    Selected for the 2008 National Poetry Series by Kevin YoungFinalist for the 2010 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literature — Poetry
    The poems in Adrian Matejka’s second collection, Mixology, shapeshift through the myriad meanings of "mixing" to explore and explode ideas of race, skin politics, appropriation, and cultural identity. Whether the focus of the individual poems is musical, digital, or historical, the otherness implicit in being of more than one racial background guides Matejka’s work to the inevitable conclusion that all things-no matter how disparate-are parts of the whole.
