Synopsis

Synopsis

With resonant artistry and unflagging directness, Wideman examines the tragedy of race and the gulf it cleaves between black fathers and black sons. He does so chiefly through the lens of his own relations with his remote father, producing a memoir that belongs alongside the classics of Richard Wright and Malcolm X.
Praise

Praise

"An important, moving, large-spirited book....Wideman understands that the personal is the political, that somehow every single black life today is tied inextricably to the prison of race."--Washington Post Book World
