4 1/2 stars

This is a book of personal essays by well-known Americans whose lives may not have resembled the stereotypical American (white, Anglo-Saxon, protestant) life. It shows that Americans are diverse and that their stories may seem different, but there are also similarities. Those that told their stories were children of immigrants, Native Americans, transgender Americans, Americans that were members of minority groups, etc. It did a great job redefining what it means to be American and I loved hearing all of the different stories.


Hebah (quietdissident) | 675 comments Ooh, this sounds good. I'm a hyphenated American too, so I love reading other people's experiences. And look, it's on the shelf at my library branch too.
