Hayes, Terrance: To Float in the Space Between: A Life and Work in Conversation with the Life and Work of Etheridge Knight
Wave Books (paperback, 2018)
Publisher Marketing: "Hayes leaves resonance cleaving the air." --NPR
In these works based on his Bagley Wright lectures on the poet Etheridge Knight, Terrance Hayes offers not quite a biography but a compilation "as speculative, motley, and adrift as Knight himself." Personal yet investigative, poetic yet scholarly, this multi-genre collection of writings and drawings enacts one poet's search for another and in doing so constellates a powerful vision of black literature and art in America.
