Descrizione

In the style of New York Times bestsellers You Can't Touch My Hair, Bad Feminist, and I'm Judging You, a timely collection of alternately hysterical and soul‑searching essays about what it is like to grow up as a creative, sensitive black man in a world that constantly tries to deride and diminish your humanity.

It hasn't been easy being Michael Arceneaux.

Equality for LGBTQ people has come a long way and all, but voices of persons of color within the community are still often silenced, and being Black in America is…well, have you watched the news?

With the characteristic wit and candor that have made him one of today's boldest writers on social issues, I Can't Date Jesus is Michael Arceneaux's impassioned, forthright, and refreshing look at minority life in today's America. Leaving no bigoted or ignorant stone unturned, he describes his journey in learning to embrace his identity when the world told him to do the opposite.

He eloquently writes about coming out to his mother; growing up in Houston, Texas; being approached for the priesthood; his obstacles in embracing intimacy that occasionally led to unfortunate fights with fire ants and maybe fleas; and the persistent challenges of young people who feel marginalized and denied the chance to pursue their dreams.

Perfect for fans of David Sedaris, Samantha Irby, and Phoebe Robinson, I Can't Date Jesus tells us—without apologies—what it's like to be outspoken and brave in a divisive world.

  • (5/5)
    Fantastic, humorous and truthful. Loved the authors honest approach to religion and how that approach makes the subject matter accessible.
  • (5/5)
    I loved being able to hear the author read this book. He truly shared himself in this book and it was a great experience. I really hope his parents have the opportunity read/hear this book as well.

    As someone who grew up in a very religious household, while simultaneously trying to learn to navigate the world being queer and black, I found this book to be very comforting. He does an incredible job of capturing emotions that I had never taken the time to express for myself. Highly recommend
