Mindy Thompson Fullilove offers a series of meditations on her remarkable family and the places where they have lived. She lovingly recalls her parents: her father, a black leader of the labor movement, and her mother, a white woman whose boundless generosity was always in conflict with the racial divisions of the world around her. "Place" is a major actor in her family story, and in the course of bringing the backgrounds of six generations into the foreground, Fullilove uncovers the many lives-her own included-that are rooted in those places.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Consistently original and provocative"-Publishers Weekly (starred review) * Publishers Weekly *
"A radiant and insightful collection of personal essays which meditate upon the importance of place in the development of character. . . . A literary antidote to the displacement and upheaval of modern life as we go crashing headlong into the new millennium."-Kirkus * Kirkus *
"Fullilove presents an extraordinary collection of highly intelligent and beautifully written essays. . . . More than memoir, the essays are an exploration of the psychological importance of place in the life of an individual. . . . Fullilove's writing is warm, gracious, and intelligent."-Booklist * Booklist *
