  • *THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*

    'A simply wonderful book' PHILIPPE SANDS

    'Begin Again is that rare thing: an instant classic' PANKAJ MISHRA

    'Incredibly moving and stirring' DIANA EVANS

    America is at a crossroads.

    Drawing insight and inspiration from Baldwin's writings, Glaude suggests we can find hope and guidance through an era of shattered promises and white retrenchment. Seamlessly combining biography with history, memoir and trenchant analysis of our moment, Begin Again bears witness to the difficult truth of race in America. It is at once a searing exploration that lays bare the tangled web of race, trauma and memory, and a powerful interrogation of what we all must ask of ourselves in order to call forth a more just future.

    'An essayistic marvel . . . deeply personal and yet immensely readable' SARA COLLINS, GUARDIAN
