Description: In his critically acclaimed memoir, New York Times editorial writer Brent Staples poses some provocative and compelling questions: Where does the family end and the self begin? What do we owe our families, and what do we owe ourselves? What part of the past is a gift and what part a shackle?

Prompted by the drug-related death of his younger brother, Staples revisits his childhood and youth in a small industrial town near Philadelphia -- a town he fled to pursue a brilliant and successful career in journalism. What Staples left behind is the subject of this searching and intimate autobiography that offers vivid portraits of family and place, of values that supported and pressure that tore apart, and of the appeal and pain of entering a predominantly white world that was literally and figuratively miles away from the black world he knew as a child.
