About this Item

SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. First Edition Thus [1995]; First Printing indicated. Very Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of wear to the top and bottom of the rear hinge; shows the mildest rubbing and a few very superficial indentations at the upper front and rear panels; barely discernible soiling and toning to the white background fields of the panels. The binding square and secure, if ever so slightly concave; the text is clean, but the pages have tanned slightly, due to aging. No longer absolutely pristine, but remains very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. xvi, 653 pages. First published in hardcover in 1994. Trade Paperback. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. First Edition Thus [1995]; First Printing indicated.

About this title


Mixing biography and autobiography, casual talk with soul-bearing revelations, the author of Balm in Gilead uses a kind of "human archaeology" to reveal the complex, nuanced lives of six middle-class African-American achievers. Strikingly candid portraits explore the experiences and events that have shaped their identities and influenced the course of their lives.
