Omar Holmon's debut book We Were All Someone Else Yesterday, is a book of poems and essays that are drenched in both sadness and unmistakable humor.

These works urgently embrace growth in the face of grief. After the loss of his mother, Holmon loses touch with reality until he re-learns how to live by immersing himself in popular culture.

Teeming with references that are palpable, and emotions that pull the heart, Holmon's debut poetry collection feels profoundly warm and longingly familiar.
