In his memoir, "There Will Be No Miracles Here," Casey Gerald reimagines what it means to truly live and succeed in our society.

Casey Gerald stands the American Dream on its head with a singular coming-of-age story, one that straddles the complex intersection of race, class, faith, queerness and masculinity. He delves into questions central to this national moment: How do we achieve success outside of a superstructure designed to suppress us? How do we rescue each other from suffering and heal from trauma without forsaking our identities? At a time when so many of us are losing faith in American institutions and reckoning with systematic injustice, Gerald brings a human and profoundly intimate voice to this collective anger and growing disillusionment, while suggesting how we might build a new foundation strong enough to sustain the richness of all that we are.
