Come by Here by Clarence Major

Book Description

African-American writer Clarence Major explores the boundaries of identity, race, and colour in this autobiography of his mother, who passed as white without erasing her past as an African-American woman. In an exploration of family relationships, Major reveals her fears, victories, and the hidden price of her choice in a world that continued to set limits on her happiness.

Books By Author Clarence Major

Painted Turtle by Clarence Major Painted Turtle, Paperback (August 2015)

"Major brings his characters to life with the accretion of specific details. Even so, his novel is distinctly spiritual, emphasizing the significance of traditional beliefs in the lives of Painted Turtle and her family."--Publishers Weekly

From Now on by Clarence Major From Now on, Paperback (April 2015)

A retrospective of poems written during the 1950s to the present, including selections from each of Major's previous books. This collection maintains Major s intimate, conversational poetry while simultaneously becoming more eclectic, multicultural, and cosmopolitan."

Down and Up by Clarence Major Down and Up, Paperback (November 2013)

In Down and Up, Clarence Major makes use of American and European public places, their character and voice, to construct poems that explore the physical world juxtaposed sharply with the inner world. Sometimes realistic, sometimes dreamlike, these poems are dynamic and universal.
