Overview

THE UNVARNISHED PERSONAL JOURNEY OF ONE BLACK MAN, TOLD TO HIS LONG-DECEASED, WHITE BEST FRIEND. A NARRATIVE IN THE FORM OF A SERIES OF LETTERS, CHRONICLING FROM CHILDHOOD WHAT IT'S MEANT TO BE A BLACK MAN GROWING UP IN AMERICA OVER FIFTY-PLUS YEARS. THIS SOMETIMES HEART-WRENCHING YET COMICAL MEMOIR SHARES THE AUTHOR'S BARE TRUTHS OF WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO ENJOY PRIVILEGE AND EXPERIENCE PREJUDICE AS HE'S NAVIGATED THE TURBULENT SEAS OF WHITE FLIGHT AND RACIAL STRIFE OF THE NEW ENGLAND SUBURBS THE TWO GREW UP IN DURING THE SEVENTIES AND EIGHTIES. THROUGH RECOLLECTIONS AND DISCLOSURES DATING BACK TO THE BOYS' DAYS RIDING BIG WHEELS IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD, TO THE INDISCRETION OF THEIR ADOLESCENCE TOGETHER, AS WELL AS THE EMOTIONAL DEVASTATION OF THE DEATH AND LOSS OF HIS BEST FRIEND, CHURCH FURTHER COMPILES AN EARNEST MANIFEST OF EXPERIENCE AND REVELATIONS, LEADING TO THE SELF-AWARENESS HIS LIFE EXPERIENCE HAS PROVIDED OVER THE YEARS, LIVING IN THE US, EUROPE AND CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA. IF THE BOOKS "EAT, PRAY LOVE" AND "A MILLION LITTLE PIECES" GOT MARRIED, THESE TWO BOOK SERIES WOULD BE THE HYBRID OFFSPRING. IT'S AN EXHILARATING ENDURANCE RIDE OF PASSION AND PRIDE AND THE PROMISE TO A BEST FRIEND TO LIVE WITH AS MUCH VIGOR AND GLEE AS ONE CAN FOR TWO.
