An Interview with Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib

In an age of confusion, fear, and loss, Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib's is a voice that matters. Whether he's attending a Bruce Springsteen concert the day after visiting Michael Brown's grave, or discussing public displays of affection at a Carly Rae Jepsen show, he writes with a poignancy and magnetism that resonates profoundly. We are beyond thrilled to be publishing Hanif's first collection of essays, They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us, this November. Following is an interview with Hanif about his forthcoming collection, his eclectic taste in music, hometown of Columbus, and our politically charged times.
