Dessa - My Own Devices

In her literary debut memoir, rapper and singer Dessa gives a candid account of her life in the van as a hard-touring musician, her determination to beat long odds to make a name for herself, & her struggle to fall out of love w/ someone in her band.

Her onstage and backstage stories are offset by her varied fascinations — she studies sign language, algebra, neuroanatomy — and My Own Devices is a prism of her intellectual life.

Her writing is infused with fascinating bits of science and sociology, philosophical insights, and an abiding tenderness for the people she tours with and the people she leaves behind to do it.

Dessa finds unconventional approaches to all of her subjects — braiding her lived experience with academic research and a poet’s tone and timing. In the vein of thinkers who defy categorization, we get the debut of a deft, likable, and unusual voice.
