Begin Again : James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for Today Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


*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 EVANSAmerica 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'An urgent, deeply interesting book' RACHEL COOKE, OBSERVERWinner of the Stowe Prize 2021Shortlisted for the British Academy Book Prize for Global Cultural Understanding 2021
