I'm a publicist working with Arisa White, author of Who's Your Daddy, a lyrical, genre-bending coming-of-age tale featuring a queer, Black, Guyanese American woman who, while seeking to define her own place in the world, negotiates an estranged relationship with her father. Early praise:


"This beautifully, honestly conceived genius of a book shook me to the core.”

 —Dara Wier


"What she gives us are archives, allegories, and wholly new songs.”

Terrance Hayes


“In these crisply narrative poems, which unreel like heart-wrenching fragments of film, Arisa White not only names that gaping chasm between father and daughter, but graces it with its true and terrible face."

Patricia Smith
