In persona poems, historical narratives, jazz riffs, sonnets, elegies, and a sequence of ars poetica, American Sublime is Alexanders most vivid and varied collection and affirms her place as one of Americas most lively and gifted writers.Alexander is an unusual thing, a sensualist of history, a romanticist of race. She weaves biography, history, experience, pop culture and dream.

Her poems make the public and private dance together. --Chicago Tribune
