Minneapolis/New York rapper Dessa has a reputation for original, incisive and often heartbreaking music, and with her new memoir-in-essays, she proves that her writing talent isn’t confined to songs. Dessa writes beautifully about a wide range of topics, including science, music and the pain that comes with being in love; it’s a surprising and generous memoir by a singular voice.
