They leave a taste in your mouth, these poems; they are true to themselves and to the world. They are gospel, indeed, and this young poet will be heard more and more spreading the true word. Good news!” ―Lucille Cliffton

‪"The Gospel of Barbecue" by Honorée Fanonne Jeffers reviewed by Stephen Page

Arriving late in the evening at the ranch house my collie greets me and I give him some raw meat I had brought with me. I eat a sandwich and drink a glass of milk and go to bed with Honorée Jeffers’ The Gospel of Barbeque (a gift from Ed Ochester), a collection of poems mostly from southern black women points of view. Each poem is from a different narrator, yet each is written in the first person. Unique and imbued with ethos, the collection takes the reader into the souls of the repressed to look out upon the world with hope and tenacity. Jeffers’ voice and style are exemplary. I read it several times and fall asleep around four in the morning. I wake up early to the sound of rain tapping on the corrugated roof of my office (we have been in a dry spell). I open a window so I can smell it, then sip a coffee at my desk while I journal and make a list of things to that day—edit a poem, edit the cover letter, meet the employees, walk about the ranch a bit and check on the state of the fattening calves and inspect the new water tank in lot eight. I sit back and smile, and think how lucky I am to have this life. Lucky, lucky, lucky. Oh, did I tell you I read Gerald Stern last month?

This book (ISBN 0873386736) clearly is not the same work as "Repealing National Prohibition" (ISBN 0873386728) by David E. Kyvig (as in the "Look Inside" feature).

Both were published in 2000 by Kent State University Press and their records have somehow been confused with each other in several databases!
