From the title it sounds like an interesting book.
I heard about the book from the Luscious Librarian:
I’ve been reading Rebecca Walker lately. I picked up Black White and Jewish, her bestselling memoir and fell in extreme like with her prose. She’s introspective and neurotic, enlightening and open about all of her experiences in life and I just drink it up. For someone who has led a relatively mundane life without travel or expensive education I live vicariously through the memoirs of passionate and interesting women.
On the other hand, mynameismyname says:
I read Walker’s memoir around the time it was first released. It’s meandering and often dull. It’s more about her personal exploits and her strained relationship with her famous mother than her personal struggles with race. I wouldn’t recommend it.
The Washington Post says it is “Compelling”, the San Francisco Chronicle calls it “Stunningly honest”. But then you know how they are.
If you have read it – or even tried to read it or thought of reading it – and have an opinion, I would love to hear it!
