On Anger
Sue J. Kim

Kim uses various literary and media texts to show how narratives serve as a means of reflecting on experiences of anger and how we think about anger—its triggers, its deeper causes, its wrongness or rightness.

The narratives she studies include the film Crash, Maxine Hong Kingston’s The Woman Warrior, Tsitsi Dangarembga’s Nervous Conditions, and The Book of Not, Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s Devil on the Cross and Wizard of the Crow, and the HBO series The Wire. Kim concludes by distinguishing frustration and outrage from anger by considering Stéphane Hessel’s call to arms, Indignez-Vous! One of the few works that focus on both anger and race. On Anger demonstrates that race—including whiteness—is central to our conceptions and experiences of anger.
