Miscegenation Blues: Voices of Mixed Race Women Reviews
This is a really underappreciated anthology and I wish it had gotten more attention. Biracial and multiracial people are rapidly becoming a clear majority of our population in America, if they aren't already. Yet little time and attention has been spent hearing what it's like to grow up with two (or more) very different cultures. I related to many of the pieces in this book as Jewish woman, growing up in Texas, with a non-Jewish father, who didn't "look Jewish" or have a Jewish last name. It brings up all sort of complicated experiences that are rarely talked about, and I know my experience is just the tip of the iceberg. I'd love to see this book get back into circulation and be more widely read. As a therapist, I have a copy of it in my office.
