Books we recommend for your giftee to unwrap from Metonymy Press

 

personal attention roleplay_unwrap blog

Why we love this book: Personal Attention Roleplay got our attention for its propulsive, perfectly weird, and quietly queer stories. Featuring mixed-race and Asian misfits looking to see themselves in their surroundings, this is a daring and witty debut about human uncertainties, obsessions, and journeys.

Where do I find the book?  Find it on All Lit Up for 15% off until Nov 28 or from your local indie bookseller with our Shop Local feature available on the book page.

 

 

 

good arabs_unwrap blog

Why we love this book: This is a genre-defying collection of verse and prose poems about Arab, trans, and queer identities existing across spaces. The poems are deeply rooted in place, taking the reader from post-explosion Beirut to a Montreal balcony and asking us to ultimately consider: what makes a home?

dear black girls_unwrap blog

Why we love this book: Written for all the Black girls out there, this is a sweet and uplifting book that affirms and celebrates Black girls with messages by poet and educator Shanice Nicole and charming illustrations by Kezna Dalz. Gift this to the Black girls who need a reminder of their beauty and intelligence and to the ones who already know their power.
