How the dialogical self discovers the appropriate pathways for guiding us through our lives
"Like his finest compositions, Benny Golson's autobiography is instantly engaging and enchants to the end. He and his collaborator, Jim Merod, have found an original way to tell the story of a long and fulfilling life, creating a tapestry of recollection, insight, and understanding of the human and artistic aspects of the music—or simply said, one of the best books on the subject of jazz."
—Dan Morgenstern, Director Emeritus of the Rutgers Institute of Jazz Studies and author of Living with Jazz
The first systematic, comprehensive evaluation of whether merit selection actually leads to better judges
"[An] important volume that proves, once again, why Werner Sollors is one of our important literary critics. In each of his essays, he provides important historical context and close attention to texts. The pieces on Richard Wright, Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, and Charles W. Chesnutt shed new light on these well-known figures by providing analyses that highlight the depth and dimension of their literary projects. The essays on Frank Webb and Adrienne Kennedy focus much-needed attention on these understudied authors. This model of strong literary scholarship will be indispensable to those who study and teach African American literature."
—Farah Jasmine Griffin, Columbia University and author of "Who Set You Flowin'?": The African-American Migration Narrative
