UQP brings forward publication of award-winning memoir ‘Punch Me Up to the Gods’

UQP is rushing out Brian Broome’s extraordinary memoir Punch Me Up to the Gods (Nov 30, 9780702265686) after it won the Kirkus Prize for Non-Fiction last month.

A coming-of-age story about Blackness, masculinity and addiction, Punch Me Up brims with swagger and sensitivity, bringing an exquisite and fresh voice to ongoing cultural conversations about racism and homophobia. It was selected today as one of the New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2021.
