Poetry. African American Studies. DRAG by Duriel E. Harris is a PoMoFunk symphony weaving the harmonics of language and culture into a transcendent whole. Forrest Hamer said: "We've been waiting for this book. DRAG is an exciting and significant debut collection from a gifted artist. Duriel E. Harris composes various and rich traditions of music, voice, and text, and Drag demonstrates ever new possibilities for this synthesis in poetry." Duriel E. Harris holds a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her writing has been published in ACM (Another Chicago Magazine), Fence, and the African-American Review. She has received grants from the Cave Canem Foundation and the Illinois Arts Council. WBEZ Chicago Public Radio heralded her as one of three Chicago poets for the 21st-century.
