Summary

Hailed as "compelling" by The Washington Post and "stunningly honest" by The San Francisco Chronicle, this memoir has hit bestseller lists and earned critical praise from coast to coast. Rebecca Walker was born in 1969 to author Alice Walker and lawyer Mel Leventhal, who met and married in the heyday of the Civil Rights movement. But after their divorce, Rebecca was a lonely only child ferrying between two worlds-and trying to figure out where she fit in. "Masterfully illuminates differences between black and white America...a heartbreaking tale of self-creation." (People ) "Walker skillfully depicts her tangled upbringing, full of disappointment and privilege." (Time) "Compelling." (The Dallas Morning News) "A poignant, spare memoir." (Chicago Sun-Times) "Powerful." (Danzy Senna, author of Caucasia)
