This was one of the most auto-biographical books I've read by hooks. She grapples with her class privilege resulting from academic and literary success, and gives interesting insight into her experience growing up as a poor person of color in the South. Although the analysis gets repetative, I still think this is a valuable contribution to discussions of class.

So many books on class are heavy with Marxist references; this is accessible and informative without ever once talking about the means of production. Huzzuh!
