Between the World and Me

Between the World and Me

176 pages; Spiegel & Grau
In a missive alight with righteous rage and sacred love—specifically, for Coates's son, to whom the book is addressed—American racism is treated as a brute material force bent on the destruction of the black body. There is much pain, and no flinching. The perpetrators are told to face their crimes and save themselves. The sufferers are implored to bind their wounds, to struggle and to live on.
