Once you start in on "the Finkelstein 5",  you will not be able to put this down. This story will grab you, enrage you, and break you while you chant along in a radical cry for justice. Adjei-Brenyah's voice rings powerful and true throughout this collection of stories. Satirical, heartbreaking, and violent stories set just within reach of "dystopian", but oh so relevant today.

Don't let Baldwin's disheveled and confused look on the cover of this book fool you - he remains, to this day, to be one of the few authors able to address America's original sin (racism) in such a succinct and challenging way. Although written in 1963, these short essays are applicable to our current situation. Whether you've thought about issues of racial justice for a long time or a short time, (or "a minute" as the kids say) this book is a must have.
