19 Years of Skin is a vivacious first collection from Superbia Chapbook Competition winner Kenya Sterling. Featuring searing poetry and pithy monologues developed both for the stage and the page, the collection takes risks, explores the fragility of gender and identity, and celebrates life despite hardship. Emotionally immersive, the book brims with euphoria and despair, understanding the importance of each, on the way towards personal discovery. Raw and at times graphic, the writing feels hard, and truthful. The poetic voice herein doesn’t ask for sympathy or pity, but rather resonates strength, even at times of intense vulnerability.
