The Max Reddick Experience

Fatheralong: A Meditation on Fathers and Sons, Race and Society by John Edgar Wideman
With resonant artistry and unflagging directness, Wideman examines the tragedy of race and the gulf it cleaves between black fathers and black sons. He does so chiefly through the lens of his own relations with his remote father, producing a memoir that belongs alongside the classics of Richard Wright and Malcolm X.  <book link>
