Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations

Incredible memoir by Mira Jacob about raising a mixed race child (Jacob is Indian-American, her white husband is Jewish), dealing with the questions that arise from her young brown-skinned son in the wake of Trumpism, handling her in-laws refusal to acknowledge their candidate’s racism. Her son asks how brown is too brown, are white people afraid of brown people, is his dad afraid of them? Honest, painful, and instructive.
