R. Eric Thomas
Playwright and Elle essayist R. Eric Thomas is here for his first book, the engaging memoir-in-essays, Here for It, Or How To Save Your Soul in America (Ballantine). “With humor, candor, and some self-deprecation, Thomas delivers a debut essay collection that explores his search for self, love, and stable employment. . . . Whether dealing with love, breakups, or other setbacks, Thomas is an affable narrator with a penchant for pop culture, funny quips, and charming humility.”—Publishers Weekly.
“Here for It is Thomas at his finest: funny, clever, thoughtful, and compelling. I’m glad the world will not only get to experience more of Thomas’s talent, but another much-needed story from another gay Black man in America.”—Michael Arceneaux.
