Sis Fuss is a novel in verse about a man named Sis who has just been released from prison. We follow Sis as he reflects on life on the "outside" and desperately tries to reconnect with family.
From the author:
I wrote Sis Fuss from a true sense of frustration with the characterization of black men as criminals. I hated that men who had been to jail and prison were so demonized. I hated the invisibility of their persons and their stories. As a child I grew up listening to the men in my family spin their tales, use word play, and sing their stories. I hoped to capture their voices in Sis's being. Sis is flawed, but in the end he is worthy of love and of being wanted.
