On July 17, 2014, a forty-three-year-old black man named Eric Garner died in New York after a police officer put him in a "chokehold" during an arrest for selling bootleg cigarettes. The final moments of his life were captured on video and seen by millions his agonised last words, I can t breathe, becoming a rallying cry for the nascent Black Lives Matter protest movement.

Matt Taibbi, bestselling author and the best polemic journalist in America , tells the full story of the man who inspired a movement neither villain nor victim, but a fiercely proud individual determined to do the best he could for his family. Featuring vivid vignettes of life on the street, this powerful narrative of urban America is a riveting work of literary journalism and a scathing indictment of law enforcement in the twenty-first century. I Can t Breathe tells the story of one man to tell the story of countless others, and the power of people to rise up against injustice.
