Jones’s memoir weaves together a series of vignettes about growing up as gay Black man in the South. Each narrative pieces together a yearning to know where he belongs—in his family, in his country, and in relation to his wants and fears. “The language is breathtakingly gorgeous, with each story building toward the bigger picture of race and queerness and grief and love in America,” Stielstra says.

For a memoir to rate so highly from me is unusual. Maybe the fact that it's short helped. [Most people's lives aren't so interesting to others that they merit more than 200–300 pages.]

Pro: relationships with his mother and grandmother; candid portrayal of his feelings of self-worth, how he treated himself, and how he allowed others to treat him and change him/how he interacted with them; moments of humor; commentary on systemic racism's role in his family's lives; an experience shared with an unrelated woman he met while traveling.

Content warning: There were scenes including explicit sex, violence, and sexual violence. [This made me pause in deciding whether to continue/how to rate. Ultimately, I didn't factor it into my rating. That is, the book would not have been a five-star book if those scenes were omitted.] ( )

This short memoir offers a glimpse into the life of a man at the intersection of both his Blackness and his queerness as he comes of age. The writing is smooth and sometimes lyrical (Jones is a poet too), and I feel like he conveyed, in a short space, a lot about his experience at that intersection. ( )

Feels like the nephew of "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" and Frank Conroy's "Stop Time" I friggin loved it. ( )

What can I say that hasn't already been said? It's lovely. The last chapter is one of the loveliest tributes I've read to a beloved mother. It reads both as a collection of essays and an eloquent whole. It is very personal and intimate and reaches out at the same time. Jones has written a lovely treasure of a book. ( )
