內容簡介


登上《紐約時報》、《出版人周刊》、《洛杉磯時報》、《華盛頓郵報》等各大媒體暢銷書排行,並獲重要媒體選為2017年最被期待的書之一。對美國種族議題最直白且熱烈的討論,是川普就任美國總統以來,一本嚴肅且迫切需要的書。

「《我們無法停止的淚:對白人美國的一篇講道》在好幾處行文優美且強而有力:個人回憶動人,文化分析深刻,一部道德贖罪的方針、讓人滿意的作品。」- 諾貝爾文學獎得主、黑人小說家Toni Morrison

「這是一篇既透徹明白又激烈猛暴的講道…,如果你是黑人,將會在每一個段落感受到一絲的熟悉。如果你是白人,Dyson告訴你該知道些什麼,或者”這個白人”至少該知道些什麼。這是一個重要的成就,我讀著這本書,口中說著”阿門”。」- 恐怖小說大師,白人小說家Stephen King


1863年林肯發表《黑奴解放宣言》後的100周年,著名的黑人小說家James Baldwin在1963年出版重要散文The Fire Next Time,主要討論種族在美國歷史中的角色;同年,馬丁.路德.金恩博士也發表Why We Can’t Wait一書,鼓吹以非暴力運動反抗美國的種族分化。50年過去了,美國至今還在處理這個迫切的議題。

本書作者Michael Eric Dyson在2016年《紐約時報》專欄上的一篇文章〈黑與白之死〉(Death in Black and White)感動了整個美國,現在他以本書持續地大聲疾呼,這個國家需要做的改變,唯有真誠面對黑人憤懣如何長期被忽視甚至不被接受,美國才有未來。

《我們無法停止的淚》是一篇簡短、充滿情感、文學氣息濃厚且強有力的書,凡是關心美國近日且長期以來亟待解決的種族關係危機的讀者,本書是不可錯過的作品,並且讓我們反思,發生在我們土地上關於族群的問題。

NOW A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | NAMED A BEST/MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2017 BY: The Washington Post • Bustle • Men's Journal • The Chicago Reader • StarTribune • Blavity

“One of the most frank and searing discussions on race ... a deeply serious, urgent book, which should take its place in the tradition of Baldwin's The Fire Next Time and King's Why We Can't Wait." —The New York Times Book Review

Toni Morrison hails Tears We Cannot Stop as "Elegantly written and powerful in several areas: moving personal recollections; profound cultural analysis; and guidance for moral redemption. A work to relish."

Stephen King says: "Here’s a sermon that’s as fierce as it is lucid…If you’re black, you’ll feel a spark of recognition in every paragraph. If you’re white, Dyson tells you what you need to know?what this white man needed to know, at least. This is a major achievement. I read it and said amen."

Short, emotional, literary, powerful—Tears We Cannot Stop is the book that all Americans who care about the current and long-burning crisis in race relations will want to read.

As the country grapples with racist division at a level not seen since the 1960s, one man's voice soars above the rest with conviction and compassion. In his 2016 New York Times op-ed piece "Death in Black and White," Michael Eric Dyson moved a nation. Now he continues to speak out in Tears We Cannot Stop—a provocative and deeply personal call for change. Dyson argues that if we are to make real racial progress we must face difficult truths, including being honest about how black grievance has been ignored, dismissed, or discounted.

"The time is at hand for reckoning with the past, recognizing the truth of the present, and moving together to redeem the nation for our future. If we don't act now, if you don't address race immediately, there very well may be no future."
