Once More to the Ghetto and Other Essays is a collection of linked explorations of race, identity, family, and community. Combining spare, unflinching prose with a razor sharp wit, Walker takes on both individual and institutionalized forms of bias and racism, pulling no punches and sparing no one, including himself, in this exciting new collection from one of America's most acclaimed essayists. Whether he’s tackling the complicated legacy of Michael Jackson, exposing the myopia of academia, paying homage to his writing mentor, or exploring what it means to come home again to Chicago, Jerald Walker’s work seamlessly blends humor, personal revelation, and cultural critique.
"No one — absolutely no one — I've read is writing better than Jerald Walker about race, being black, and the depths and complexities of our humanity."
