Kevin Coval on the Daily Show with Trevor NoahMothers and Other Strangers in Good Housekeeping

There’s a cultural Renaissance happening in Chicago, and at the epicenter of it all is the Windy City’s hip-hop and poetry scene. Kevin Coval, one of the city’s most influential poets, pays tribute to this Renaissance in A People’s History of Chicago, and on April 26 Coval appeared on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to talk poetry and politics in a divided America. “In every neighborhood there's a spectrum of human experience,” Coval told host Noah in a ten-minute interview about A People’s History of Chicago during which Trevor Noah held up to the camera his own copy of A People's History of Chicago. This spectrum of experience is what Coval aims to capture in his book, which contains seventy-seven poems that reflect life in each of Chicago’s seventy-seven different neighborhoods. Coval added that he hopes his writing can truly honor the city’s working class and pay homage to “a history and a legacy of black, queer women who are holding the mayor's feet to the fire.” The Daily Show interview was highlighted in an article published in the Chicago Tribune this morning. If you needed any other incentive to pick up copies of this book, here it is: Chance the Rapper wrote the foreword.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and the May issue of Good Housekeeping celebrates all of the women in our lives who’ve made us who we are. As part of this particularly maternal edition, Good Housekeeping published an original essay by Gina Sorrell, author of Mothers and Other Strangers, entitled “How I Really Met My Mother.” The essay was accompanied by an image of Mothers and Other Strangers and the praise “Gina’s riveting novel centers on a woman who must unravel the mystery of her late mother’s life. Along the way, she uncovers family secrets that change her forever.” Mothers and Other Strangers tells the story of one woman’s quest to understand her recently deceased mother, who left her an inheritance of debts and mysteries. Mothers and Other Strangers has been hotly anticipated since last year, when The Millions named it an anticipated read of 2017 on December 13.
