Without a doubt the best book I have read in 2019 thus far Thick And Other Essays is thick with wit intelligence and an assured self awareness Tressie McMillan Cottom addresses many topics within the realm of black womanhood including beauty standards and whiteness ethnic differences within the black community socioeconomic class and assimilating into capitalism and I loved how she always took her analysis one step further like in her essay about beauty how she refutes the neoliberal idea that we are all beautiful and she instead asserts that we should uestion why we value beauty and who profits from determining what we consider beautiful She applies this insight to an expanse of subjects including how black women do not get positions at high prestige publications in which she analyzes David Brooks s Twitter follows to highlight how few people in positions of power listen to black womenRecommended to everyone and also fans of Roxane Gay Brittney Cooper and Rebecca Solnit McMillan Cottom has a distinct voice and she integrates her personal life with her societal analysis in powerful ways in this collection The heartbreaking content she reveals in Dying to be Competent literally made me pause and take a breath because of the skill and poignancy in which she intertwines her personal loss with greater stereotypes and discrimination against black women I look forward to reading of her work and I hope you all give this book a read
