A voice we don't hear often enough

These essays are astute cultural criticism about race, ethnicity, identity, and masculinity, but are also very personal and intimate. One of my favorites is about the fear of aging in “Echocardiogram.” Another favorite is “2042.” While telling a story of a fishing trip in the Caribbean, Gee's essay becomes a contemplation about race and privilege. The year 2042 is the year that non-whites will outnumber whites in America according to population predictions. He is “wondering about the influence of minorities from what will be a very different America, in a rapidly transforming world.” Masterful and well worth reading. He doesn’t offer any easy answers, just a compassionate, inquisitive, personal voice, and one that we don’t hear often enough.
