"With Build Yourself a Boat, Camonghne Felix heralds a thrillingly new form of storytelling."
--Morgan Parker, author of Magical Negro

This is about what grows through the wreckage. This is an anthem of survival and a look at what might come after. A view of what floats and what, ultimately, sustains.

Build Yourself a Boat redefines the language of collective and individual trauma through lyric and memory.
