 ‘A Little Devil in America’ is an important and just purely amazing book about black performance in America. It contrasts Abdurraqib’s personal perspective with historical accounts, featuring the dust bowl dance marathons, black magicians and Arthena Franklin’s documentary of a performance in the 70s. Abdurraqib is a voice of our time, having already shown he is an incredible writer with his book ‘They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us’ he has somehow outdone himself with this book. History cannot be left behind, it echoes into the future and Abdurraqib is the writer to show it.
