The Jamaican writer Kei Miller narrates his collection of essays with powerful clarity and vulnerability. The audiobook's title reflects his experiences with being Black and queer and with being seen as a brother, a threat, a Jamaican, a target, and a family member. He also addresses the nature of things unsaid or let go. Miller reflects on his experiences when self-professed allies fail him, when family secrets remain untold, and when, even in his role as a professor, he is treated with suspicion. His disarmingly personal reflections culminate in a deeply affecting final essay, an emotionally wrenching listening experience on police violence, senseless death, and the cry for humanity and justice. Throughout, Miller's riveting voice never ceases to engage the listener. S.P.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
