Description
(Number 60 on Time Magazine's list of the Best 100 Non-Fiction Books) Published in 1965 at the height of the civil rights movement, Claude Brown's thinly fictionalized memoir is an unvarnished account of life in Harlem at midcentury. After serving several terms in a reform school, Brown avoids many of the pitfalls and temptations of urban life, ultimately graduating from college and attending law school. The New York Times Book Review praised Brown's use of language as "fierce, uproarious, obscene and tender."
