Poetry. Kevin Young says of GRAVITY, U.S.A.: "With her debut, Jacqueline Jones LaMon graces us with a collection both introspective and out of body, her poems taking on the weight of the everyday world, and the extraordinary within it. GRAVITY, U.S.A. is not just a book filled with subtle, sorrowful, and ultimately brazen power, but a place where you’ll want to visit, and stay," and Dorianne Laux writes, "LaMon’s poems are packed with sharp detail, street parlance and jazzy riffs. The stuff of real lives. Greetings to a bright new voice." Jacqueline Jones LaMon is currently Assistant Professor of English at Adelphi University, New York. GRAVITY, U.S.A. is the winner of the Quercus Review Poetry Series, Annual Book Award, 2005.
