Winner of the 2020 APR/Honickman First Book Prize, Chessy Normile's debut collection, Great Exodus, Great Wall, Great Party, asks what would happen if we actually believed language to be a creative force that constructs our lived experience. Though "hope" is something we assign to the future, these poems disrupt the very notion of time in order to be hopeful about the past, and the present.

Chessy Normile's poetry is, according to Li-Young Lee, "smart, curious, original, and authentically weird.
