520    In The Lonely Letters, A tells Moth: "Writing about and 
       thinking with joy is what sustains me, daily. It nourishes
       me. I do not write about joy primarily because I always 
       have it. I write about joy, Black joy, because I want to 
       generate it, I want it to emerge, I want to participate in
       its constant unfolding." But alongside joy, A admits to 
       Moth, come loneliness, exclusion, and unfulfilled desire. 
       The Lonely Letters is an epistolary blackqueer critique of
       the normative world in which Ashon T. Crawley-writing as A
       -meditates on the interrelation of blackqueer life, sounds
       of the Black church, theology, mysticism, and love. 
       Throughout his letters, A explores blackness and queerness
       in the musical and embodied experience of Blackpentecostal
       spaces and the potential for platonic and erotic 
       connection in a world that conspires against blackqueer 
       life. Both a rigorous study and a performance, The Lonely 
       Letters gestures toward understanding the capacity for 
       what we study to work on us, to transform us, and to 
       change how we inhabit the world.
