Blues For All The Changes by Nikki Giovanni
Writing Style: Discursive, Satirical...and Temperamental
Personal Highlights: Most enjoyable about this small dated rambling treat was the skill used to create satirical artsy prose. The mockery, riddled through long-winded ambling sentences made this otherwise reflective, often serious commentary on everyday life happenings and conversations effective, and easy to curl up with. My favorites; ‘2 Word Poem,’ ‘Monday,’ ‘Be My Baby’ and (haha) ...’A Real Pisser’ was simply, one word, Hilarious. ‘Iverson’s Posse’ was another prose to treasure, and as well, Truthtelling! All around, this was an impressive treat.
