Summary
Possessing black skin while searching for space to breathe in America is enough to induce a ceaseless state of angst. Young chronicles his efforts to survive while battling and making sense of the various neuroses his country has given him. At their most devastating, these essays provide him reason to believe that his mother would be alive today if she were white. The result is both a celebration of the idiosyncrasies and distinctions of Blackness and a critique of both white supremacy and how we define masculinity. -- adapted from jacket
