An American Memoir
By Kiese Laymon
Narrated by Kiese Laymon /  6 hours 17 minutes

Laymon holds up a mirror to the US past, present - "We did not have to be this way. We will not ever have to be this way." I'm going back to read everything Laymon has ever written. {I listened to the audio book (highly recommend - it's read by the author).}”
