The White Card: A Play By Claudia Rankine Cover Image
ISBN: 9781555978396
Availability: On our shelves now at one or more of our stores
Published: Graywolf Press - March 19th, 2019

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.
