A landmark work of cultural criticism that will help define a generation, Jesse McCarthy's Who Will Pay Reparations on My Soul? travels nimbly from Ta-Nehisi Coates's for reparations and Toni Morrison's revolutionary humanism do D'Angelo's simmering blend of R&B and racial justice, investigating with virtuosic intensity the art, music, literature, and political stances that have defined the twenty-first century. "Folding together the apparently disparate into a unique and seemingly inevitable form" with "a revolutionary, almost joyful sense of mission" (Claire Messud, Harper's Magazine), these bracing essays portray a brilliant young critic at work, making sense of our turbulent times while seeking to transform out understanding of race and culture, identity and representation.
