“Dear Brother,” a poem from Skeets’s revelatory debut, begins with the line “You kissed a man the way I do,” a statement that momentarily suggests communion between the gay speaker and his brother. But Skeets’s poetry is wilier, more harrowing than that. The line drops into its turn and shows the brothers at odds: “You kissed a man the way I do / but with a handgun. You called it; I’m the fag / we were afraid to know.” Throughout this book, Skeets challenges toxic masculinity with a queer coming-of-age narrative that’s knowingly reminiscent of D. A. Powell’s “Useless Landscape, or A Guide for Boys” — but distinctly oriented within Navajo culture and the landscape of Gallup, N.M. Boys there, Skeets writes, “are often the wind / always a howl” and “know becoming a man / means knowing how to become charcoal.” Masculinity leads to premature death, from violence or alcoholism. One elegized figure is Benson James, the poet’s uncle, whose portrait, taken by Richard Avedon in 1979, appears on the cover. Stabbed to death within a year of the picture, James becomes “a mirror / if I stare long enough,” Skeets writes. Can the speaker escape his uncle’s fate? The book’s triangulation between violence, self-destruction and desire leads Skeets to declare that “the closest men become is when they are covered in blood / or nothing at all.” By turns elegiac and erotic, the collection is also lush with language whose music evokes the landscape. This is one of the most accomplished and emotionally engaging debuts I have read, one that shows a man “unlearns how to hold a fist” by holding another man’s hand. Spreading the word was central to the advancement of democracy and to the Modern’s core mission. Toward that end, “Useful Objects” did whistle-stop tours of the country; and repackaged, retitled versions of “Good Design,” among other MoMA design shows, traveled abroad during the Cold War under the aegis of the State Department, advertising the fruits of Western freedom and ingenuity.

Schedule a TripMr. Murphy had thought films were just popular entertainment. But “The Player” — particularly its eight-minute-long tracking shot that both mocks the chatter at a Hollywood studio and references the opening shot of Orson Welles’s “Touch of Evil” — gave him the impression that movies “could be art in the way that Michelangelo’s ‘David’ is art.” “I know that we often intentionally did not include them in some events, in state dinners and things like that, even when they were in town,” said Gahl Burt, the former social secretary for Nancy Reagan.
