About the Author:

CLIFFORD THOMPSON received a Whiting Writers' Award for nonfiction in 2013 for Love for Sale and Other Essays (Autumn House Press). He is the author of a memoir, Twin of Blackness (Autumn House Press, 2015), as well as the novel Signifying Nothing, and his essays on books, film, jazz, and American identity have appeared in publications including The Threepenny Review, The Iowa Review, Commonweal, Film Quarterly, Cineaste, Oxford American, and Black Issues Book Review. For over a dozen years he served as editor in chief of Current Biography, and he has held adjunct professorships at Columbia University and New York University. Thompson is married with two daughters and lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Review:

“Ultimately, this warm, humorous memoir reminds us that prejudice continues through stereotyping and broad-based assumptions based on race, gender, religion, and ethnicity. It's only when we're able to view people as people—not based on baggage they might be carrying—are we able to make progress in building a more peaceful, compassionate society.”—Debbie Hagan, Brevity
