I wanted to leap from my chair several times while reading this book because it is so good that it felt disrespectful to read it sitting down.

There is not another book like this on the planet, but there should be. I can promise you that I will be talking about this book until the day I die.

Many of us hope that we would not end up on the wrong side of the potent conversations in this electrifying play. But there are so many wrong sides. The lines Rankine draws here are blurry and moving fast - the discomfort is the point. Rankine does here what all great dramatists do - distills the complex noise of our time into a clear mirror. When we catch a glimpse of ourselves we are forced to try to do better.
