Read full description of the books:
The coming-of-age part of this book was excellent. The author grew up poor and adopted in south Los Angeles, went to UC Berkeley, and became a writer. I savored reading about his experiences, which were so different from mine. This opened a world to me, of Black culture, that I have no experience with. The justifiable anger over the Rodney King beatings; the justifiable anger in general.
I was riveted by his relationship with Camille. But, the last third of the book was a bit boring. The author handles a roach-infested apartment and then plans a wedding (just...not memoir worthy stuff, you know?)
In general, a great book. I'm trying to get woke. This book helped.
