New from One World

We Were Eight Years in Power

A powerful portrait of the historic Obama era that provocatively combines award-winning journalism with the introspective, searching voice of Ta-Nehisi Coates' memoir, the National Book Award-winning Between the World and Me

“It's this timeless timeliness—reminiscent of the work of George Orwell and James Baldwin—that makes Coates worth reading again and again.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Biting cultural and political analysis. . . [Coates] reflects on race, Barack Obama’s presidency and its jarring aftermath, and his own evolution as a writer in eight stunningly incisive essays…. [Coates] contextualizes each piece with candid personal revelations, making the volume a melding of memoir and critique. Emotionally charged, deftly crafted, and urgently relevant essays.” –Kirkus, starred review
