Summary
"Growing up in Eureka, Mississippi in 1950, Lee is confused about his place in the world, but he doesn't let it get him down. He falls for the beautiful Angelina, whose racist father drives him to a new life in St. Louis as a white man. Soon he's drafted into the psych-ops corps in Nevada for the Vietnam War. A drunken accident forces him to accept yet another completely new identity, but easy-going Lee just takes it all in stride, ready to move on to the next absurd adventure"--Container
Summary
African-American albino Lee Cotton struggles with his identity as a black person capable of gaining entry into white society, experiencing a romance with a Klansman's daughter, a freight train attack, and the women's liberation movement
