Home Court


Home Court poems by Ben Alfaro.and Jose Olivarez.  This jam-packed dynamic-duo debut collection explores what it means to grow up loving basketball, playing it watching it, thinking about it -- and how the relationship between men and games/sports informs masculine identity in American culture.  Whether it's watching ballers from different races square off for dominance of the court or the imperative of playing through the pain of a jammed finger, Ben and Jose go deep into how they grew into the men they've become and how they feel about evolutions still in the future.
