"The Lonely Letters is a Black queer critique of the normative world, practicing a restlessness of word and phrase that seeks existence otherwise. The book is a work of creative non-fiction, taking the form of a correspondence between characters A and Moth. The letters explore Blackness and queerness through the music and embodied experience of Blackpentecostal spaces.... This book will be of interest to readers and scholars in African American studies, Black Diaspora studies, queer studies, and religious studies"--Abridged from publisher description.
