The Beautiful Struggle: A Memoir

by Ta-Nehisi Coates - £9.99  Verso Books (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784785345 | ISBN 10: 1784785342

The Beautiful Struggle is an extraordinary memoir from the most important new voice in the US race debate and the author of New York Times bestseller list no. 1 Between the World and Me, hailed by Toni Morrison as “required reading.”
 
This small and perfectly formed epic follows the lives of boys on the journey to manhood in black America and beyond in 1980s Baltimore, a city on the verge of chaos. These youngsters needed to learn fast, and Ta-Nehisi’s father, Paul, was a fine teacher: a Vietnam vet who rolled with the Black Panthers, an old-school disciplinarian, and an autodidact who launched a publishing company in his basement.
 
The Beautiful Struggle is a moving father-and-son story about the reality that tests us, and the love that saves us.
