Here’s what Random House writes about Kaur’s See No Stranger:

How do we love in a time of rage? How do we fix a broken world while not breaking ourselves?
.
Valarie Kaur describes revolutionary love as the call of our time, a radical, joyful practice that extends in three directions: to others, to our opponents, and to ourselves. It enjoins us to see no stranger but instead look at others and say: You are part of me I do not yet know. Starting from that place of wonder, the world begins to change—it is a practice that can transform a relationship, a community, a culture, even a country.
.
Kaur takes readers through her own riveting journey—as a brown girl growing up in California farmland finding her place in the world, as a young adult galvanized by the murders of Sikhs after 9/11, as a law student fighting injustices in American prisons and on Guantánamo Bay, and as a woman trying to heal from her own experiences with sexual assault and police violence. Drawing from the wisdom of sages, scientists, and activists, Kaur reclaims love as an active, public, and revolutionary force that creates new possibilities for ourselves, our communities, and our world. See No Stranger helps us imagine new ways of being with each other—and with ourselves—so that together we can begin to build the world we want to see
