A New Voice from No Man’s Land

(Books, History, Nonfiction) Permanent link

A refreshingly bold and astute essayist, Eula Biss’ critical inquiries on race relations, globalization and cultural identity have found their way into her recently published and award-winning Notes from No Man’s Land: American Essays. Unburdened with academic theorization or political heavy-handedness, these short yet heady pieces are revelatory for their power to penetrate the opaque surfaces of subjects not often discussed with any kind of attentiveness to nuance within the broader, public discourse. Her prose flows with ease and the way in which she ponders the intersections of American culture and history reminds me of the work of another great ruminator, Joan Didion.
