From the author of the bestselling Caucasia, a sad, revealing memoir of the mixed-race marriage of her parents, and the very different American origins that brought them together and pulled them apart.

The New York Times - David Matthews

[Senna's] serpentine journey through the Deep South, as she sifts through the lies, horrors and obfuscations of her family's past in search of how her father came to be, makes up the most absorbing portion of the book. She's masterly at relaying—and, more important, withholding—information, so that every lead, every twist, begs for a page-flip…The author propels these early chapters along with the kind of snappy knockout prose Ross Macdonald might have employed, had he been given to long ruminations on race and identity in American culture.
