Best African American Essays: 2009 de Debra J. Dickerson (Editor)
Selected from a diverse array of respected publications such as the New Yorker, the Virginia Quarterly Review, Slate, and National Geographic, the essays gathered here are about making history, living everyday life--and everything in between. In "Fired," author and professor Emily Bernard wrestles with the pain of a friendship inexplicably ended. Kenneth McClane writes hauntingly of the last days of his parents' lives in "Driving." Journalist Brian Palmer shares "The Last Thoughts of an Iraq War Embed." Jamaica Kincaid describes her oddly charged relationship with that quintessentially British, Wordsworthian flower in "Dances with Daffodils," and writer Hawa Allan depicts the forces of race and rivalry as two catwalk icons face off in "When Tyra Met Naomi." A venue in which African American writers can branch out from traditionally "black" subjects, Best African American Essays features a range of gifted voices exploring the many issues and experiences, joys and trials, that, as human beings, we all share.
