A book signing with copies for sale will follow. And all Jeni’s pints will be $2 off in honor of Columbus book publisher, Two Dollar Radio.
More about “They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us:”
In an age of confusion, fear, and loss, Abdurraqib’s voice resonates profoundly. In essays that have been published by The New York Times, MTV, and Pitchfork, among others—along with original, previously unreleased essays—Abdurraqib uses music and culture as a lens through which to view our world, so that we might better understand ourselves, and in so doing proves himself a bellwether for our times.
The Washington Post calls the book “breathtaking,” commending Abdurraqib for «impeccable command even in his most vulnerable reflections. The struggle between anguish and hope, between a well-impacted cynicism and the optimism needed to face another day underscores nearly every essay.”
