Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Directly addressing the relationship with his father, a Marxist Caribbean nationalist, Kwame Dawes presents a memoir of intellectual rigor that is coupled with great tenderness. With the immediacy of a man thinking aloud and the careful structure of art that recalls the places that have molded his life—from Ghana and Jamaica to Canada and America—Dawes explores the nearly universal conditions of migrants. Ultimately about the joys of personal differences, this autobiography is a touching look into the life of a son, husband, and father.

About the Author

Kwame Dawes is a professor of English at the University of South Carolina. He is the author of eight collections of poetry, a collection of short stories, and three works of criticism. He lives in Columbia, South Carolina.
