Michaela Coel recently burst onto the pop culture scene for creating and starring in the British TV drama "I May Destroy You." This memoir expands on her recent speeches given at industry events. She narrates her own story, which personalizes the experiences for the listener. Coel is unflinching as she tells of a childhood spent in government housing and recalls a long recovery from sexual assault. Sensitive listeners might find some of her journey difficult to hear. Others who are looking for stories of resilience, strength, and self-awareness will lean into these short, concise chapters. Coel's background as an actor helps her shine in this intimate portrayal of an admirable person who, one senses, is just getting started.
