Gates Memoir is Superb

by Ronald on Jan 19, 2012

This memoir by Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is by far one of the finest personal journeys through one's past that I have ever read. Being from the same part of the country as Professor Gates, I especially enjoyed the descriptions of the local people and environment. Also, the book was received in time (as I had requested) for a book signing by Professor Gates at Politics and Prose in DC.
