Notes from No Man's Land: American Essays

Author(s): Eula Biss


In a book that begins with a series of lynchings and ends with a series of apologies, Eula Biss explores race in America. Her response to the topic is informed by the experiences chronicled in these essays, such as teaching in a Harlem school and reporting for an African American paper. These spare, sometimes lyrical essays artfully reveal in intimate detail how families, schools and neighbourhoods participate in racial privilege.
