    Between the World and Me is an epistolary work of nonfiction that takes the form of a letter from author Ta-Nehisi Coates to his fifteen-year-old son. The book-length letter is broken into three. Between Two Worlds is the second novel in Upton Sinclair's Lanny Budd series. First published in , the story covers the period from to Plot. This volume deals with the aftermath of World War I in Europe during the s (with the Beer Hall Putsch, the Italian fascist regime and some of the important conferences) and later the Roaring : Upton Sinclair.

      Between the World and Me has been called a book about race, but the author argues that race itself is a flawed, if not useless, concept—it is, if anything, nothing more than a pretext for racism. Early in the book he writes, “Race, is the child of racism, not the father.”/5(78).

And in China, gagung literally means “bare sticks” but signifies the growing population of men who will will remain unmarried because China’s one-child policy and unabashed preference.

    Between the World and Me is a book with many gems in it but it forces the reader to search for him. And thus it fails to fully break through as one would hope.   Inspired by James Baldwin’s classic “The Fire Next Time,” Ta-Nehisi Coates’s new book, “Between the World and Me,” is a searing meditation on what it means to be black in America.
