M.K. Asante, JR. - Beautiful. And Ugly Too

Sold out.

"Beautiful. And Ugly Too, the critically-acclaimed, second poetry collection from award-winning author M.K. Asante, Jr., reveals through its delicate rhythm, the plurality of being alive. The poems, sketched from influences and drawn from experiences around the world, are colorful comments on the human condition. "A thought provoking journey down the lonely road of wisdom and whiplash." —John Mitchell, Los Angeles Times

“Sensitive yet iconoclastic! His words channel ancestral resistance.” — Bruce George, Co-founder of Def Poetry Jam

“A vivid, yet carefully constructed meditation on reality Beautiful and Ugly Too is a timely dissection of twentieth-century isms through verse... life and all of her blemishes reflected through a collage of eloquent vignettes.” —Jazmyn Martin, Philadelphia Tribune
