In this excerpt from her book, Letter To My Rage, Lidia Yuknavitch explores her anger and its potential for transformation.
She writes, “I’m so filled with you, Rage, I’m having trouble figuring out how to route the anger so I don’t short circuit myself and spontaneously combust. I’m angry at the irresponsible responses to a virus ravaging our loved ones. I’m angry that police brutalize Black people like they are gunning for Facebook likes. I’m angry at the piss-poor president, some sorry-ass excuse of a meat sack in an ill-fitting suit.”
