The Southern Review of Books praises the revised edition of Kiese Laymon’s HOW TO SLOWLY KILL YOURSELF AND OTHERS IN AMERICA. They write: “Laymon approaches issues of race with a wide lens, encompassing both personal and social aspects, revealing that they are irreversibly intertwined — what happens socially shapes our personal lives, and vice versa. His narrative is unapologetic and fierce but never without a distinct lyricism and intentionality, even tenderness.” Additionally, NPR 1A and Shondaland both interviewed Kiese in podcast discussions about the essay collection. Scribner published the book on November 10, 2020.
