What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A pathbreaking work of scholarship, invigorating interest in the essay as a portal to some of the most pressing issues of race, culture, and politics across history, including our present time.--Gene Andrew Jarrett, New York University



Beautifully written and compellingly argued, this welcome and necessary book rescues the genre of the essay from the margins of our discussions about African American intellectual and cultural production.--Farah J. Griffin, Columbia University
