Book Overview

We are living through an unprecedented, revolutionary era. Across the country, people have lost loved ones, livelihoods, homes, and even their own lives to Covid-19. In the midst of the pandemic, historic protests erupted in the summer of 2020 over the constant brutality against Black Americans. Galvanizing and lyrical, There's a Revolution Outside, My Love captures and gives voice to all of the roiling sentiments of the moment in an anthology for the ages.

Beginning with a heart-rending poem that grieves murdered Black citizens--the book fans out across a troubled, shattered America, offering a kaleidoscopic view of survival, grief and the search for joy. Composed of searing letters, essays, poems, lamentations, and exhortations, There's a Revolution Outside, My Love highlights the work of some of our most powerful and treasured writers: Edwidge Danticat, Layli Long Soldier, Julia Alvarez, Reginald Dwayne Betts, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, and many others. They hail from across a range of backgrounds and from nearly all fifty states. Noisy with beauty, they plead for safety and justice. Sweetness, even.

This is an intimate anthology of writing that offers a space to mourn and ponder what the nation is, and what it can be. It offers solace in a time of protest, change, and violence--reminding us of the human scale of the upheaval that reverberated across the country.
