A Parallel Life (Hardback)Bonnie Greer (author)
- In stock online
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.

'A lyrical, mannered memoir in which the American-British playwright and novelist returns to the South Side of Chicago, where she grew up in the 1950s and '60s in a poor, segregated neighborhood. . . Greer's mellifluous work should introduce her to new readers.'* Kirkus Reviews *
