Black Queer Hoe Reviews
One of the many fun things about reading this in public is when an old white dude insists on knowing what you're reading, so you tell him and watch the horror-confusion wash over him, slowly, from his New Balance sneakers all the way to his balding pate.
I would read a granola recipe called Queer Black Hoe, so why wouldn't you want to read a whole book with that title? Do it.
A celebration, a cuss out, a fuck you and a prayer is what this collection is. Black Rose forces you to stare and then asks what the fuck you looking at.

We give each other a hard time. Sometimes the jokes cut a little too close, but we don't let on how much some of them sting. One time, though, a friend made a comment that was a joke but in reality flayed this person wide open. In reading their expressions as they processed the words, I got to take a long look down their emotional hallway, and saw how much we were alike. That's how I felt reading this book. To use so few words to expose such vulnerability and to forecast such a storm of confiden ...more
