This time we are talking about Anatole Broyard whose brilliant literary career put him in the spotlight. As an adult he was continuously criticized by many blacks because he wrote about his racial identity in an oblique way.

After his death in 1990, his daughter Bliss Broyard wrote a book “One Drop: My Father’s Hidden Life – A Story or Race and Family Secrets.” The title speaks for itself. If you are interested in reading a complex book about a complex issue, you have just found your book.
