Product Details


“A zany, exuberant and highly original meditation on what it means to come of age as a mixed-race person in a predominantly white world.”THE NEW YORK TIMES

“An observant writer, Harris shares illuminating intellectual analysis that incorporates philosophical introspection,… references to Greek mythology, and American politics in a stimulating narrative of civil rights activism, pop-culture heroism, and the multilayered, heroic struggle of people of color. A swift, inspired, and thought-provoking examination of the intersections of heroism, racial identity, and diversity.”KIRKUS

“[Harris] provides a roadmap through which readers might learn to think deeply about these topics.”SHELF AWARENESS

“Mixed-Race Superman does away with gods and heroes to write a new kind of masculinity into being. It is refreshing and moving in its embrace of mixed identity as wholeness and as a form of resistance.” —Preti Taneja, author of We That Are Young

“How do you understand your place in the world as a mixed-race person? Mixed-Race Superman swoops between the theoretical, the political, the historical, and the personal. And I, for one, am very grateful it exists.” —Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You

“With an astonishing intellectual range and adaptability, his book is a must-read for anyone interested in racial identity in the modern world.” —Sandeep Parmar, author of Reading Mina Loy’s Autobiographies: Myth of the Modern Woman
