The winner of the 2018 Slope Book Prize, Our Pornography and other disaster songs was chosen by judge Ocean Vuong. Ocean writes, "Our Pornography is a crystalline, dusky and charmingly stubborn American text whose power rests in its desire to complicate linear time into a constellation of epicenters. This myriad-voiced long poem embraces the detritus and paraphernalia of its moment, and ushers it all, like a river carrying the grit and sparkle, truth and secrets of its undertows, toward a future not yet accounted for because the present still promises discovery. And what discoveries here in these staccato and ruptured lines that, despite everything, find a way to offer the world anew."


B.J. Soloy lives in Kansas City with Julie "The Hammer" Rouse, Solomon Longfellow, and any combination of unstable familiars that Julie's lured into the apartment. He has a chapbook, Selected Letters, out with New Michigan Press and poems in places like FIELD, Colorado Review, New American Writing, BOAAT, Guernica, Tenderloin, and Forklift, Ohio.
