    A Parallel Life

    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. ""proper girl"" was a precious definition in segregated and racist America, where black life was deemed only three-fifths of white life.and the life of a black woman even less. This compelling memoir will not just enlighten, engage, and enthrall, but will move you to tears with every turn of the page. Courage, defiance, and ultimately hope define the story of a life - indeed, a parallel life - that just had to be lived. ""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."" parallellifer
