Praise

“The recurrent strands of his thought—family, education, race, sex, California, America, Mexico—gain a new resonance each time and stand, in the end, for the complexity of a whole greater than the sum of its parts.” —The New York Times Book ReviewBrown is an elegant, nuanced plea for the individual as the primary force in American life…. But as admirable as it is in its vision, Brown is more intriguing for it honesty about the author’s desires and frustrations.” —San Francisco Chronicle
