Summary
You'd be angry, too ... if you grew up poorer than poor in Harlem in the 1960s and '70s, a place of unrelenting violence, racism, crime, rape, scamming, drinking, and drugging ... with a dad permanently checked out in Bellevue and a mom at the end of her rope raising you, your twin sister, and your two brothers, moving every time the money runs out-- and doing what it takes to survive
Summary
Traces the impoverished early years of Ke-Ke, who awakens from a coma in her midlife to confront events that shaped her resolve to leave Harlem, earn an education, and pursue a writing career
