I have a new review essay in the Los Angeles Review of Books on two recently published books by Chip Delany: In Search of Silence: The Journals of Samuel R. Delany, Volume I, 1957-1969 (Wesleyan University Press, 2017) and Voyage, Orestes! (Bamberger Books, 2019).
“In Search of Samuel R. Delany”
It’s really real now. Thank you to all of you who have pre-ordered the book and waited patiently for the roll-out. Pre-ordered copies should start shipping by the end of the week. Also, it looks like the Kindle price has been temporarily lowered, so you should jump on that if you feel so inclined.
I’ll be reading at McNally Jackson Books in SoHo on November 14, with my CUNY colleague Dr. Debarati Biswas. Books will be available at the reading! RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-blackademic-life-tickets-64987959737
The Blackademic Life: Academic Fiction, Higher Education, and the Black Intellectual is set to be released on October 15. It is now available for pre-order.
Here’s a sneak peek at the cover:
I’m looking forward to this book release event on October 24 with fellow Mississippian and CUNY Graduate Center alum, Dr. Stacie McCormick. Her book Staging Black Fugitivity is available now.
