Honky

Dalton Conley

Publisher: Vintage Books USAFormat: Paperback

As recalled in Honky, Dalton Conley' s childhood has all of the classic elements of growing up in America. But the fact that he was one of the few white boys in a mostly black and Puerto Rican neighborhood on Manhattan' s Lower East Side makes Dalton' s childhood unique.At the age of three, he couldn' t understand why the infant daughter of the black separatists next door couldn' t be his sister, so he kidnapped her. By the time he was a teenager, he realized that not even a parent' s devotion could protect his best friend from a stray bullet. Years after the privilege of being white and middle class allowed Conley to leave the projects, his entertaining memoir allows us to see how race and class impact us all. Perfectly pitched and daringly original, Honky is that rare book that entertains even as it informs.
