That’s Ta-Nehisi Coates on the magazine. He’s been on all the NPR shows and on the TV talk shows. I’m reading his book, Between the World and Me. It’s one of five I’ve got going. I don’t usually have five going.
If you’ve seen him on TV or heard him, the book’s a lot better than he talks. He’s a real writer.
Everybody tells you to read this book. I can see why. It’s not the standard fare.
