“A skyscraper in the literature on racism.” —Christian Science Monitor

NAMED A BEST BOOK OF 2020 by The New York Times, Time Magazine, NPR, Esquire, The Guardian, O Magazine, Ms. Magazine, Star Tribune, St. Louis Post Dispatch, Christian Science Monitor, Kirkus Reviews, and Publishers Weekly

As everyday white supremacy becomes increasingly vocalized with no clear answers at hand, how best might we approach one another? Claudia Rankine, without telling us what to do, urges us to begin the discussions that might open pathways through this divisive and stuck moment in American history. Just Us is an invitation to discover what it takes to stay in the room together, even and especially in breaching the silence, guilt, and violence that follow direct addresses of whiteness. This brilliant arrangement of essays, poems, and images is Rankine’s most intimate work, less interested in being right than in being true, being together.

La edición en español de la nueva y aclamada reflexión de género mixto de Claudia Rankine (Citizen) sobre la blancura en los Estados Unidos. 


NOMBRADO MEJOR LIBRO DE 2020 por The New York Times, Time Magazine, NPR, Esquire, The Guardian, O Magazine, Ms. Magazine, Star Tribune, St. Louis Post Dispatch, Christian Science Monitor, Kirkus Reviews y Publishers Weekly.

A medida que se aumenta el discurso sobre la supremacía blanca cotidiana sin tener respuestas claras a mano, ¿cuál es la mejor manera de acercarnos a los demás? Claudia Rankine, sin decirnos lo que tenemos que hacer, nos pide que iniciemos los debates que podrán abrir caminos a través de este momento divisivo de la historia estadounidense. Just us nos invita al descubrimiento de lo que se necesita para seguir hablando juntos, incluso y especialmente para romper el silencio, la culpa y la violencia que siguen a los discursos directos sobre la blancura. Este conjunto brillante de ensayos, poemas e imágenes es la obra más íntima de Rankine, menos interesada en tener razón que en encontrar la verdad, en estar juntos.
