bell hooks is a revolutionary thinker, and her memoir is truly phenomenal. This is a great edition, came exactly as promised. A very quick read - only takes a few hours to get through the first time, but rewards further reflection. I read this as a book club book, and I recommend reading it for conversation. It sparks thinking about all sorts of different, quite serious, themes and topics, but also a great spark for more close reads around writing.

bell hooks is an amazing storyteller and the telling of her own story is quite remarkable. While she's been through a lot of different experiences, both good and bad, her experiences are wrapped in the love her family always had for her.

bell hooks is known for her many books on the politics of art and culture. This addition is more about the processing of becoming a mature thoughtful writer. Her road was a painful one but all that she experienced fortified her work process and personality. There is some beautiful visual writing and depth in bell hooks' bone black.
