In this riveting memoir, Richard Rizzo describes moving from his Italian-American neighborhood to Harlem in 1949. His mother had married a black man, and from the age of nine well into adulthood he shuttled back and forth between white and black worlds. He survived in these segregated communities by becoming a chameleon. Then, as America changed, he began to discover who he was. His unique experience illuminates the nature of ethnic and racial identity.
