About the book:
"Haunted and haunting, Jones’s memoir tells the story of a young, black, gay man from the South as he fights to carve out a place for himself, within his family, within his country, within his own hopes, desires, and fears."
"An award-winning poet, Jones has developed a style that’s as beautiful as it is powerful—a voice that’s by turns a river, a blues, and a nightscape set ablaze. How We Fight for Our Lives is a one-of-a-kind memoir and a book that cements Saeed Jones as an essential writer for our time."
“Powerful…Jones is a remarkable, unflinching storyteller, and his book is a rewarding page-turner.” PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"An unforgettable memoir that pulls you in and doesn’t let go until the very last page." LIBRARY JOURNAL
"Jones' unabashed honesty and gift for self-aware humor will resonate with readers, especially those in search of a story that resembles their own." BOOKLIST
