Razor Bumps and Stretch Marks: An Anthology

By Byron Sogie-Thomas


Razor Bumps and Stretch Marks is a rite of passage. It reflects the hazards and romance of growing up.

It also represents my journey over the past two decades or so, with a healthy dose of what I’ve heard and observed from those around me, fellow travelers who didn’t always know I was watching.

I resisted the impulse to arrange the poems thematically, or in chronological order, a nod to life’s often non-linear character. Instead, they are arranged alphabetically. That way, whenever you’d like to return to one favorite or the other, you’ll know where to find it.

Look forward to hearing which verse helped make your load a little lighter.

As you’re familiar, during these extraordinary times, we’ve taken on significant volume and have had to extend our turnaround times on U.S. orders over the last two weeks. As we manage that previous volume and continually receive new orders, we must extend our turnaround times further. As a result, we’re required to further extend the turnaround times for U.S. print orders. We expect to be back to traditional operating turnaround times in a few weeks and appreciate your business and support during this challenging time.

Turnaround Times for U.S. Print Orders

•U.S. orders for hardcover books are estimated to print in 24 business days
