A firsthand account of the 2014 Ferguson uprising that challenges how we document and report on political unrest.

Jacqui Germain's debut collection, Bittering the Wound, is a first-person retelling of the 2014 Ferguson uprising. Part documentation, part conjuring, this collection works to share the narrative of the event with more complexity, audacity, care, and specificity than public media accounts typically allow. Throughout the book, Germain also grapples with navigating the impacts of sustained protest-related trauma on mental health as it relates to activism and organizing. The book also takes occasional aim at the media that sensationalized these scenes into a spectacle and at the faceless public that witnessed them.

Bittering the Wound challenges the way we discuss, write about, and document political unrest. It offers fresh language and perspective on a historic period that reverberated around the world. Germain takes the reader through poems that depict a range of scenesfrom mid-protest to post-protestand personifies St. Louis with a keen and loving eye.

Bittering the Wound was selected by Douglas Kearney as the winner of the 2021 CAAP Book Prize.
