Her second book, In the Wake: On Blackness and Being, was published by Duke University Press in November 2016 and was named in The Guardian newspaper and The Walrus as one of the best books of 2016. In the Wake was a finalist for nonfiction for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Awards. Her first book Monstrous Intimacies: Making Post-Slavery Subjects (2010) was also published by Duke University Press. She is currently completing the critical introduction to the Collected Poems of Dionne Brand (1982-2010) to be published by Duke University Press and she is working on a monograph: Black. Still. Life. Sharpe has recently contributed essays to the book accompanying Arthur Jafa’s first solo exhibition Love is the Message, The Message is Death, an essay called The Crook of Her Arm to a collection on the work of the artist Martine Syms, an essay on Luke Willis Thompson’s autoportrait (2017), and a brief essay on Emma Amos’s Take One (1985-87).
