Summary of Mixology Summary of Mixology Reviews for Mixology An Excerpt from Mixology
Selected for the 2008 National Poetry Series by Kevin Young
The poems in Adrian Matejka's second collection, Mixology, shapeshift through the myriad meanings of "mixing" to explore and explode ideas of race, skin politics, appropriation, and cultural identity. Whether the focus of the individual poems is musical, digital, or historical, the otherness implicit in being of more than one racial background guides Matejka's work to the inevitable conclusion that all things-no matter how disparate-are parts of the whole.
-Kevin Young, 2008 National Poetry Series judge
