Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES #2 BESTSELLERLONGLISTED FOR THE CARNEGIE MEDAL 2018'I've been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates' Toni MorrisonPowerful and necessary, a state-of-the-nation portrait of America under Obama from the prize-winning, bestselling author of Between the World and MeFrom 2008-2016, the leader of the free world was a black man. Obama's presidency reshaped America and transformed the international conversation around politics, race, equality. But it attracted criticism and bred discontent as much as it inspired hope - so much so, that the world now faces an uncertain future under a very different kind of US President.In this essential new book, Ta-Nehisi Coates takes stock of the Obama era, speaking authoritatively from political, ideological and cultural perspectives, drawing a nuanced and penetrating portrait of America today.

TA-NEHISI COATES is a national correspondent for The Atlantic and the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Between the World and Me, winner of the National Book Award. A MacArthur 'Genius Grant' Fellow, Coates has received the National Magazine Award, the Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis Journalism, and the George Polk Award for his Atlantic cover story 'The Case for Reparations'. He lives in New York with his wife and son.
