A Kirkus Prize-winning memoir from author Saeed Jones. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly talk about the emotional impact of listening to the author narrate his own memoir. His story centers around his experience coming of age as a Black, gay boy in the South, and growing up with a single mother. Through his dynamic narration, listeners will hear echoes of events that shaped his life, whether it’s tender moments with his mother, or the voices of chilling, taunting slurs and declarations of violence. Published by Simon & Schuster Audio.
