    ?Manchild in the Promise Land,? a classically written autobiography by author Claude Brown in which he significantly discusses to each viewer the actualities of life, furthermore; nicely detailing how life is lived in the ghetto communities in America. As I began reading, I found myself emotionally attached to his literature because of his injection of factuality in which was nicely vaccinated into the body of his composition. The author truly and compositionally poured every inch and ounce of experiences that he had encountered during his lifespan on God?s green earth into the cup of veracious literacy. Claude Brown openly reveals to each reader life experiences, furthermore, the book begins to inform initially readers about his life as an adolescent. Nevertheless, the author informs each reader about the destruction of his community in which was caused by poverties, inebriations (drugs and alcohols), illegal organization and performances (crimes). The author basically reveals to his audience the ups and downturns of living in ghetto. Furthermore, after my completion of reading the entire book, I would like to say finally that this is a book for all ages. Nevertheless, this book that is based on real life experiences. ?Manchild in the Promise Land? is a classic book!
