Literary Nonfiction. African & African American Studies. Women's Studies. "...at once tender and tough, witty and wise, LIFE DURING WARTIME rigorously examines important issues ranging from how the body absorbs the pain objectification, misogyny, racism, and colorism, to the daily microaggressions faced by a woman of color working in tech, to the sheer volume of noise associated with urban living."—May-Lee Chai
