    Book Description:
    Poetry. African American Studies. "HUGHSON’S TAVERN is a sly, rowdy, big-eared book, lining out and sounding out, filled with desperado aplomb. Big-footed as well (reminding one of Olson’s reminder that a foot is to kick with), it plies a ’boot-heel music’ given to offhand acuity, tonic reprisal, declarative elan: Butch Morris meets Howlin’ Wolf. As elsewhere in Moten’s work, in HUGHSON’S TAVERN the wounded rally"—Nathaniel Mackey. Moten is the author of ARKANSAS, In the Break: The Aesthetics of the Black Radical Tradition, and I Ran from It but Was Still in It. He lives in Durham, North Carolina.
