What People are Saying About This

Peggy Phelan

“Come home Charley Patton floats between memoir and dream, history and fable, family and fantasy. Generous, informative, personal and shrewd, this is a compelling self-portrait of Lemon’s art and life, love and grief. Drawings, poems, maps, lyrics, and stories are all choreographed here to stage Lemon’s intoxicating life-dance.”

Daphne Brooks

“Critically-acclaimed choreographer and dancer Ralph Lemon’s new book is a memoir, an experimental art installation, and a rigorous critical study that resonates with power and showcases his gifts as a storyteller and cultural critic. Come home Charley Patton is a poignant and imaginative work that contributes to the growing field of scholarship on African American travel and critical journeys linked to excavating the political and socio-historical past. It is at once mysterious, enigmatic, and provocative.”
