Born in the Year of the Butterfly Knife
Famed for being the first and best-selling collection, Butterfly Knife features acclaimed pieces such as "The Kurosawa Champagne", "A Finger, Two Dots, Then Me", "Pleased to Meet You Yellow", and "Hot for Sorrow" - works of poetry and fiction from 1993-2004.
Praised for his exceptional style, Anthem Magazine says "Derrick Brown's work-both on and off the page-sizzles with arresting images and wit, all while keeping a compassionate core".
Jeffrey McDaniel exclaimed "Brown has a heart the size of a Mack truck, yet we're unsure who's steering".
"Sincere, twisted and violently romantic." OC Weekly
