Casey Gerald

Casey Gerald is the author of the memoir There Will Be No Miracles Here, which novelist Marlon James, winner of the Man Booker Prize, has called “the most urgently political, most deeply personal, and most engagingly spiritual statement of our time.” Although it has the arc of a classic rags-to-riches tale, the book stands the American Dream narrative on its head, while straddling the complex intersection of race, class, religion, sexuality and masculinity.

A native of Oak Cliff, Texas, Gerald was educated at Yale College and Harvard Business School. Gerald has been featured in The New York Times, which selected TWBNMH as one of the 100 Notable Books of 2018, in Vanity Fair, on MSNBCNPR, and other outlets.
