Randall Mann has long been admired for merging raw subject matter with formal ease in poems “at once boisterous and lubed, anxious and ambivalent” (Kenyon Review). In A Better Life, a gay, multiracial speaker toggles between the “florescent rot” of childhood and the “action; / transaction” of a sex-app midlife.
