Reviews

"Provocative . . . Persuasively describes the phenomenon of belonging to two different worlds, and thus belonging to neither."
--New York Times Book Review

"Fluidly, calmly, insightfully, Obama guides us straight to the intersection of the most serious questions of identity, class, and race."
--Washington Post Book World

"Beautifully crafted . . . moving and candid . . . this book belongs on the shelf beside works like James McBride's The Color of Water and Gregory Howard Williams's Life on the Color Line as a tale of living astride America's racial categories." --Scott Turow

"Obama's writing is incisive yet forgiving. This is a book worth savoring."
--Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here
