Product description


Praise for The Beautiful Struggle

 “I grew up in a Maryland that lay years, miles and worlds away from the one whose summers and sorrows Ta-Nehisi Coates evokes in this memoir with such tenderness and science; and the greatest proof of the power of this work is the way that, reading it, I felt that time, distance and barriers of race and class meant nothing. That in telling his story he was telling my own story, for me.”
-- Michael Chabon, bestselling author of The Yiddish Policemen’s Union and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

"Ta-Nehisi Coates is the young James Joyce of the hip hop generation." -- Walter Mosley

“Ta-Nehisi Coates's The Beautiful Struggle is a compelling story told in a musical voice about the author’s father, a proud black man and revolutionary, struggling to raise his family in the ashes of the revolution.  A timely story of family, tough love, and courage.”  
— Flores Forbes, author of Will You Die With Me?: My Life and the Black Panther Party

“A beautiful journey.  A voice rich in detail, Coates is lyrical and clever. As he navigates through a slice of urban American, we root for him as he fumbles and finds purpose. This debut establishes Coates are one of the most luminous storytellers of his generation.”
— Natalie Y. Moore, author Deconstructing Tyrone: A New Look at Black Masculinity in the Hip-Hop Generation

"A beautiful story of manhood from a beautiful American city, where emotions fall as hard as rain and can prove to be just as cleansing. But the most remarkable thing in The Beautiful Struggle is the voice of Ta-Nehisi Coates, which lingers in the ear. A find you're not likely to forget." 
                                                                        –Neely Tucker, author of Love in the Driest Season

 “With humor, grace, and an impressive reserve of compassion, Ta-Nehisi Coates has crafted a great gift of a book.  The Beautiful Struggle should be required reading for black boys — and those who are raising one.” 

--William Jelani Cobb, author of The Devil and Dave Chappelle

“[A] compact, young-voiced, old-souled book…its voice is prophetic.”

--Rick Simonson, Elliott Bay Book Company
