“Brewer’s collection . . . holds our gazes to the underbelly and shows us that, here, too, the imagination thrives and, like all undeniable art, is written in spite of all the things that work to silence it.” - Ocean Vuong

“Pitch-perfect, tightly focused first full-length collection” - Stephanie Burt, American Poet Magazine

“A revelation.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review) 

“This work quakes and blooms and dares us to try to resist the world’s grace.” - Ada Limón

“William Brewer is an immensely gifted poet. I Know Your Kind is a commanding debut.” - Eduardo C. Corral

“Bristling with urgency but impeccably composed, harrowing but determinedly non-sensationalistic” - Timothy Donnelly
