    Author and essayist Kiese Laymon is one of the most unique, stirring, and insightful new voices in American social and cultural commentary. How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America is a collection of his finest essays, touching on subjects diverse as family, race, violence, celebrity, music, writing, and coming of age in the rural Mississippi Gulf Coast. Laymon's writing is always honest, while also being alternately funny, lacerating, and wise. In How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America, Laymon draws heavily upon his own past, which is filled with personal trials and reflections of those trials across the broader American culture. As revealed in the book's titular essay, Laymon attended three colleges before earning his undergraduate degree. He was suspended from the first of these institutions, Millsaps College, following a probationary period resulting from a controversial essay. As the school's president described it, the "Key Essay in question was written by Kiese Laymon, a controversial writer who consistently editorializes on race issues." Controversy seems to follow this talented young writer, but as he himself puts it, "my job is to ask questions, to broaden the scope of American literature by broadening the scope of who is written to and imaginatively writes back."Laymon possesses one of the most entertaining, poignant, and fresh voices in contemporary American writing, while his acerbic wit, colloquial style, and clarion insights will remind readers of a modern Mark Twain. Much like Twain, Laymon's writing is steeped in controversial issues both private and public. From his biting critiques of race politics to revelations of his own internal struggles with American "blackness," Laymon taps into an ongoing conversation that is played out consciously and subconsciously across all of our artistic, cultural, political, and economic realities. This collection introduces Laymon as a young writer who delicately balances volatile concepts on a razor's edge, bringing to the foreground much-discussed and often-misunderstood topics through his scathing humor, moral struggles, confessional revelations, and telling observations of people's absurdities, frivolousness, and resilience. His acumen for the eloquently put and clearly posed phrase has been widely praised, as essays in this collection have already appeared in Gawker, Esquire, ESPN.com, and other popular outlets. His young career is already continuing the legacies of great writers such as Christopher Hitchens, Kurt Vonnegut, and Nora Ephron, and with his debut novel Long Division (Agate Bolden, June 2013) and How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America releasing nearly simultaneously, Laymon is ready to make a splash across the literary world.
