White Noise (Paperback)
Not Yet Published
Leo, Misha, Ralph, and Dawn are old friends. The two couples have a lot in common--good educations, progressive politics, a taste for culture. But when a racially motivated incident with the cops leaves Leo shaken, he decides he must take extreme measures in order to survive. Suzan-Lori Parks' newest work reveals how easily fissures can form in the social contracts we build with one another when confronted with difficult questions about race and identity.
