Review in Hyperallergic

"Nduka's erotic poems are gentle, tender, and, for the most part, quite hot. . . . but such moments are surprising when they crop up, piquant or musty turns, unexpected and emphatic shots of physical punctation. More often, the poems’ erotic elements are part of a more general heightened, sexualized atmosphere, a kind of free-floating horniness or 'beautiful confusion' in which the desire to merge with the beloved is inextricable from the desire to create. . . . Facing You is by no means entirely erotica; it touches on a wide range of experience, including Nduka’s own Nigerian-American identity and the social crises of our moment."—Mark Scroggins
