Poetry. African American Studies. TEAHOUSE OF THE ALMIGHTY is Patricia Smith's fourth book of poetry. A record-setting, four-time national poetry slam champion, Smith has been featured in the film "Slamnation" and on the HBO series "Def Poetry Jam". "TEAHOUSE OF THE ALMIGHTY is searing, honest, well-crafted, and full of the real world transformed by Patricia Smith's fine ear for nuance and the shaking of the soul's duties. I was weeping for the beauty of poetry when I reached the end of the final poem"-- Edward Sanders. "Patricia Smith is a powerful poet whose work gets stronger with each book. She will knock your socks off"--Stephen Dobyns. Winner of the National Poetry Series.
