Electric Arches is an imaginative exploration of Black girlhood and womanhood through poetry, visual art, and narrative prose. Blending stark realism with the surreal and fantastic, Eve L. Ewing's narrative takes us from the streets of 1990s Chicago to an unspecified future, deftly navigating the boundaries of space, time, and reality. Ewing imagines familiar figures in magical circumstances--blues legend Koko Taylor is a tall-tale hero; LeBron James travels through time and encounters his teenage self. She identifies everyday objects--hair moisturizer, a spiral notebook--as precious icons. Her visual art is spare, playful, and poignant--a cereal box decoder ring that allows the wearer to understand what Black girls are saying; a teacher's angry, subversive message scrawled on the chalkboard.Electric Arches invites fresh conversations about race, gender, the city, identity, and the joy and pain of growing up. Eve L. Ewing is a writer, scholar, artist, and educator from Chicago. Her work has appeared inPoetry, The New Yorker, New Republic, The Nation, The Atlantic, and many other publications. She is a sociologist at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration.… (mer)

Beautiful compilation of verse and art of personal experience, but translatable into universal understanding, empathy, compassion. In her introduction, Ewing says "This book is about my life and maybe also your life." and the foreword in the book notes "Poets fill in the spaces other types of storytelling can't always reach." That's the connection this book fosters. Ewing is an important voice in Chicago -- focusing on sociology in education at U of C and equity in CPS. "Ignore Eve Ewing at your own intellectual, political, and cultural peril." says Chicago magazine. Read this and you won't want to. ( )

Fantastical and feminine and painful and beautiful--those are the words that came to my mind when I was reading this book. I couldn't relate to most of the poems, but I could feel them. I thought it was interesting how Ewing combined the poetry, art, and narrative prose, and overall I think it worked well. I appreciated the allusion to The Iliad in "Requiem for Fifth Period and the Things That Went on in Them." Full review to follow. ( )

"I know I can't tell the difference between a good and a bad poem"

I enjoyed this. Just don't ask me to tell you why.

There's a tryptic of poems (the first time, four boys on ellis & another time.) interspersed through the book, which I assumed on the title would be poems about sex. Then, it being 2018, I felt the needle — I hope it's consensual. They weren't. It was racism

Delightful poems from a Chicago artist who is also a great twitter follow. The form and feel vary throughout, I liked this very much. ( )

When I was a little girl, I was allowed to ride my bicycle from one end of the block to the other, because that way my mother could come outside and stand on the sidewalk and see me.
