Reviews

I loved Eddie Glaude's Begin Again. James Baldwin is a man for our moment: in a time of Black Lives Matter we've come to think about our past, our colonial history, enslavement, matters of race and identity. The beauty of this book is not just that it's deeply personal, but that it's also extraordinarily scholarly . . . You're left with an understanding of the extraordinary modernity, relevance and the immense power of James Baldwin. It's a simply wonderful book -- Philippe Sands
Begin Again is an essayistic marvel
, circling and folding back on itself as Baldwin's musings in the past and Glaude's analysis of the present give meaning to each other . . . a scholarly, deeply personal, and yet immensely readable meditation, a masterful reckoning with the "latest betrayal" of the American ideal -- Sara Collins * Guardian *
Timely, powerful . . . Glaude invites us with him to "read Baldwin to the end" and reveals a writer, not spent, but rather illuminating the path beyond despair - the work of a saint if ever there was such a thing -- Ashish Ghadiali * Observer *
A call to confront the truth and legacies of the traumatic birth of America . . . urgent . . . original -- Sujit Sivasundaram * History Today, Books of the Year *
Begin Again is that rare thing: an instant classic -- Pankaj Mishra, author of The Age of Anger
An unparalleled masterpiece of social criticism. Glaude thinks alongside America's finest essayist, matching the master's firepower, brilliance, courage, and sensitivity at every turn . . . breathtaking -- Imani Perry, author of Breathe and Looking for Lorraine
Incredibly moving and stirring. Begin Again. . . underlines just how relevant and crucial Baldwin's work has always been and always will be -- Diana Evans, author of Ordinary People
A powerful indictment of racial injustice in the US written in conversation with the writings of James Baldwin . . . whose wisdom should be part of our conversations today * New Statesman *
Begin Again
speaks to a global Black Lives Matter movement . . . A riveting read -- Raymond Antrobus, author of The Perseverance
The magic of Begin Again is that it allows us to ponder Baldwin both in his perilous era and in our own. Remarkable, and remarkably relevant -- Tracy K. Smith, author of Pulitzer Prize-winning Life on Mars
