From the Publisher:
"Kenneth McClane's Walls is a collection of exquisitely crafted autobiographical essays that rivals the most profound nonfictional writings of James Baldwin in its skillful investigation of the hidden recesses of the always-throbbing black American soul. In-deed, Walls is a beautifully calibrated exploration of the challenges faced by a courageously self-aware---and refreshingly self-revealing---black intellectual whose journey to and in the American mainstream is both menacing and exhilarating."---Michael Awkward, University of Michigan||"Walls reminds us of the differences that set us apart, dividing our world into good kids and troublemakers, winners and losers, the beautiful and the damned. The anodyne for exile in these essays in McClane's common but by no means commonplace lexicon, at once evocative and spare, that leads us to painful but honest connection and the luminous possibility of empathy."---William L. Andrews, University of North Carolina or Chapel UK.||When Kenneth McClane's first collection of essays, Walls, was published in 1991, Choice, Magazine announced that "[these] essays break new ground in the tradition of African American personal narratives." Many of these pieces have appeared in anthologies, including The Best American Essays, The Art of the Essay, and Bearing Witness: Selections from African-American Autobiography in the Twentieth Century.||Now, the University of Notre Dame Press is proud to bring Walls back into print, making these profoundly important essays about the experience of being both African American and middle-class in contemporary America available to a wide new readership.
