9780679737452: Black Ice

In 1972 Lorene Cary, a bright, ambitious black teenager from Philadelphia, was transplanted into the formerly all-white, all-male environs of the elite St. Paul's School in New Hampshire, where she became a scholarship student in a "boot camp" for future American leaders.  Like any good student, she was determined to succeed.  But Cary was also determined to succeed without selling out.  This wonderfully frank and perceptive memoir describes the perils and ambiguities of that double role, in which failing calculus and winning a student election could both be interpreted as betrayals of one's skin.  Black Ice is also a universally recognizable document of a woman's adolescence; it is, as Houston Baker says, "a journey into selfhood that resonates with sober reflection, intellignet passion, and joyous love."

From the Publisher:

"Probably the most beautifully-written and the most moving African-American autobiographical narrative since Maya Angelou's celebrated I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings."
--Arnold Rampersad

From the Back Cover:

"A genuinely remarkable book that takes its place alongside those by Richard Wright [and] Maya Angelou . . . by a writer of singular grace, wit and self-knowledge . . . Black Ice is beautiful in all respects, not merely as a contribution to that 'unruly conversation' among black Americans but as a precious gift to all of us." --Washingotn Post Book World

"Probably the most beautifully written and most moving African-American autobiographical narrative since Maya Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." --Arnold Rampersad

"A stunning memoir . . . Subtly nuanced and unsparingly self-aware . . . Black Ice is an extraordinarily honest, lively and appealing book." --The New York Times Book Review
