This is how your review will appear: 4.0 out of 5 stars A Complex Life, August 10, 2013 By MOONBEAM - See all my reviewsThis review is from: My Long Trip Home: A Family Memoir (Hardcover) This book is written as a memoir, but explores the complexities of growing up in a bi-racial family, post civil-rights era. It is well written, and moves at a good pace, and covers family situations that can apply to many of us in today's world. Ultimately, Mark outlines his life and how he was able to forge ahead, against many odds, to become a respected man in the newspaper and news industry. I think that there were some great little treasures to discuss and this book will be on my reading groups' "Fall Lineup".

The book was recommended to me by a family member because a cousin is referrenced in this book as a friend of the author. I started to read this book only for that reason but found the book so interesting and it took me back in time. I am the same age as the author and I remember much of the history. Well written and easy to read. This is not the type of book that I would normally have purchased but very glad that I did.

I always like to read books by journalists, since they are such good writers, but it tremendously bugs me, when the proof-reading is bad. This books was probably printed in a hurry, and it shows. The story is very interesting, but the errors in the text take away from the experience.
