Praise for Cairo Workbook:

“In TJ Anderson’s Cairo Workbook, the poems render the city of Cairo in the way an astute filmmaker might focus their lens on the nuances of light. In the poems gathered here the reader is exposed to a complex articulation of the intersectionality of Africa and African America, a subject rarely approached in poetry. We hear the cadences of jazz colliding with the car horns and street calls of Cairo, the daily exchange of black and brown. The details and corners are what matter here. Characters illuminating the heart of the city as one might find in the burgeoning alleys of a Cairo neighborhood, or perhaps in the detailed streets of their own imagination.” ~Matthew Shenoda, author of Tahrir Suite
