Written After a Massacre in the Year 2018 (Hardcover)
Author: Daniel Borzutzky
Publishers: Coffee House Press (2021)
In Written after a Massacre in the Year 2018, Daniel Borzutzky rages against the military industrial complex that profits from violence, against the unfair policing of certain kinds of bodies, against xenophobia passing for immigration policy. He grieves for the children in cages and the martyrs of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburg. But pulsing amid Borzutzky’s outrage over our era’s tragedies is a longing for something better: for generosity to triumph over stinginess and for peace to transform injustice.
