Durand Jones’s Wait ‘Til I Get Over is a memoir and a love letter.
It is the story of Jones’s life, his growth and revelations, the
wisdom of his hometown and the wisdom he could only gain
once he left. In it, he writes through Hillaryville’s contradictions:
the pristine beauty and the ragged roads; his teenage desire
to leave and his adult desire to honor his tangled roots; the
plantation history and the ups and downs of the Black community
that made homes of this reparation town. “Hometowns have a
way of keeping a part of you,” says Jones, “and if I’m making
something young-me would be proud of, Hillaryville is a big part
of that.” Jones finds something transformative in his memories
there and the life he has led since, ultimately claiming and
embracing his whole self.


The result is vulnerable, personal, touching on Jones’s
relationship to church life, to his mother, to his queerness, to
his worth. “I wish I could tell my younger self ‘you don’t have to
stick to the dreams people have for you,’” says Jones, “’you can
dream bigger. You are more than capable, you are more than
able. I think about some nerdy punk kid in the rural south who
needs to hear that now.’” Wait ‘Til I Get Over does exactly that.
