Interesting memoir about racial relations and racial identity set in Muncie Indiana in the 1950's. Also, an interesting aside is that it was written by the President of City College.

Wonderful memoir. Karr's prose combines lyric descriptions and Texas vernacular. It's well worth the read.

Daniel Deronda by George Eliot
Rate this book
Clear rating
The critics tend to view this as among Eliot's weaker novels and I tend to agree. After reading The Mill on the Floss, the characters in this novel are not as well realized. But it is interesting to look at in terms of Zionism.

Highly enjoyable read. DO NOT see the HBO movie though, it is horrible and will ruin the book for you.
