Review: Citizen: An American Lyric

Citizen: An American Lyric
Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine

Kelsey’s Goodreads rating: 5 of 5 stars

Heady, powerful, necessary lyric about race.

I found it to be an emotional read that engaged me from page 1. The imagery will stick with me for awhile. A must read.

“That time and that time and that time the outside blistered the inside of you, words out maneuvered years, had you in a chokehold, every part rough up, the eyes dripping.”
