My Time Among the Whites: Notes from an Unfinished Education

by Jennine Capó Crucet

From the author of Make Your Home Among Strangers comes a collection of essays on feeling like an “accidental” American and the tectonic edges of identity in a society centered on whiteness.


Coming September 3, 2019

 

“A powerful book on the American experience that is both timely and still ticking… a funny, intimate, important, and most necessary read.”

Amber Tamblyn, author of Era of Ignition

 

“Crucet is an essential truth-teller, the whisper in your ear you should listen to, wise and funny as she tries to save your life—and this book is a triumph.”

Alexander Chee, author of How to Write an Autobiographical Novel
and Queen of the night
