A meandering and dead-serious meditation challenging the centrality of Black Music to black poetry and black critical theory, Dear Angel of Death proposes disinvestment in the idea of the Music as the highest form of what blackness "is." This long essay includes many forms: philosophical divergence on the problem of folds for black life, a close reading of Nathaniel Mackey's neverending novel From a Broken Bottle Traces of Perfume Still Emanate, and an impassioned defense-cum-dismissal of contemporary hip hop's convergence with capitalism.

Simone White was born in 1972 in Middletown, Connecticut, and grew up in Philadelphia. After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1997, she practiced law for seven years. Simone is the author of House Envy of All of the World (Factory School, 2010), the chapbook Dolly (Q Ave Press, curated by Ross Gay, with the paintings of Kim Thomas), and her work also has appeared in The Claudius App, Aufgabe, The Recluse, Callaloo, Ploughshares, Tuesday; An Art Project, the exhibition catalogue for the Studio Museum in Harlem's Flow, and Gathering Ground: A Reader Celebrating Cave Canem's First Decade. She lives in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
