How We Fight for Our Lives Synopsis

Winner of the 2020 Stonewall Book Award - Israel Fishman Non-Fiction Award.

Jones's voice and sensibility are so distinct that he turns one of the oldest of literary genres inside out and upside down. NPR'S Fresh Air Jones tells the story of a young, black, gay man from the South as he fights to carve out a place for himself, within his family, within his country, within his own hopes, desires, and fears. Through a series of vignettes, Jones draws readers into his boyhood and adolescence-into tumultuous relationships with his family, into passing flings with lovers, friends, and strangers. Each piece builds into a larger examination of race and queerness, power and vulnerability, love and grief: a portrait of what we all do for one another - and to one another - as we fight to become ourselves.

An award-winning poet, Jones has developed a style that's as beautiful as it is powerful - a voice that's by turns a river, a blues, and a nightscape set ablaze. How We Fight for Our Lives is a one-of-a-kind memoir and a book that cements Saeed Jones as an essential writer for our time.
