Emanuel Xavier discusses Love(ly) Child

Emanuel Xavier

"A vibrant collection of confessional, polemical verses." -Kirkus Reviews

Love(ly) Child is a thought-provoking collection of poetry that delves into themes of identity, love, and self-discovery. Each poem is a journey into the complexities of the human experience navigating sensitive topics with honesty and vulnerability. With a unique blend of personal anecdotes and social commentary, Love(ly) Child offers a captivating exploration of life's highs and lows, leaving a lasting impact on those who immerse themselves in its pages. (Queer Mojo)

Born in Brooklyn, Emanuel Xavier lives in New York City. One of the first openly queer spoken word poets to emerge from the Nuyorican Poets Café slam scene, he helped open the doors for LGBTQ+ poets of color to take centerstage and speak their truths.
