Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Traces the author's rise from a youth spent in Brooklyn's Brownsville housing project to a Grammy Award winner and two-time National Book Critics Circle Award finalist, in an account that describes his early family life, the pop culture that inspired his career, and his collaborations with such figures as Spike Lee and Chris Rock.

Review:
"Rooted in George's personal experience, this memoir is also a lively look back at historical changes in popular music, film, and writing...His moving family story grounds the book...but it is the wry, sharp, unpretentious cultural analysis that is at the core here..."

Hazel Rochman, Booklist Upfront, 02/15/2009

Review:
"[A] charming memoir....a front-row seat to New York's shifting dynamics during [the 1970s, '80s, and 90s]....And cameos by [Russell] Simmons, [Spike] Lee and Quincy Jones sparkle in George's crisp prose."

Brian Braiker, Time Out (New York), 04/02/2009
