Reviews

"More than a thought experiment, Jacob Saenz's debut collection Throwing the Crown quietly defies the old narratives that portray young men in cities like Chicago as anonymous statistics and cautionary tales." - Gregory Pardlo, from the introduction "Saenz's skillful and rich lyricism is abundant with internal rhyme, staccato anapests and dactyls, and athletic extended metaphors." - Gregory Pardlo, from the introduction "Jacob Saenz has penned an American lyric, and has reinvigorated language for our time." - Gregory Pardlo, from the introduction
