A Parallel Life

£9.99

Product description

Grey cloth boards with whole book being classed 'Almost as new' but for a gift annotation on the epigraph page. Jacket very clean but price clipped. Illustrated with b&w plates. Award-winning playwright, author and critic Bonnie Greer's touching, funny and thought-provoking memoir is a voyage into the making of a woman who set out to unmake what she'd been born and brought up to be: 'a proper girl' - a precious definition in a segregate and racist America where black life was deemed only three-fifths of white life ... and the life of a black woman even less.
