DARRELL DAWSEY: LIVING TO TELL ABOUT IT Carly McFadden 1. Andre . 18 a. -Helped pull about seven drive-by shootings b. -Says it makes you feel powerful c. -You have to get dressed up in your gang colors d. -He and hi. . -He and his girlfriend were best friends, used to rob places together, they thought they were outlaws e. -they got caught, Andre took.

Dawsey doesn't boast at all about how he not only outlived most of his friends but developed himself into a highly articulate and sensitive writer on one of the touchiest and divisive subjects of all. But, it's hard not to notice. the genius of Dawsey's work is that he doesn't so much tell you that racism is real but rather shows you what he's seen- and leaves it up to you to decide.

The book makes clear, however, that these success stories are atypical, and Dawsey echoes his subjects by clearly laying all the blame on a callous white power structure. Here is a sad and disturbing reminder that America must find solutions for her volatile and growing underclass. A candid, often vexing collection of interviews with young black men on key contemporary issues. Detroit News feature writer Dawsey takes his radiation-finding equipment to America's social ground zero by interviewing dozens of young black males ranging in age from 15 to 24.

Of the many books dealing with the intricacies of narrative technique, and the impact of stories (especially the ethical impact), James Phelan's is the best I've read. It should be studied by every student of fiction. Unlike most current works on narration, this one makes me wish I could have read it before writing my own works on these issues. ―Wayne C. Booth, Professor Emeritus, University of Chicago

The statistics about young black men are familiar; homicide is their #1 killer, one fourth are in jail, on parole or probation, and theirs rates of unemployment, teen fatherhood, educational drop-out-and death-exceed those of any other demographic group. Moreover, in the public mind, even those who don't bear out the grim statistics have come to embody society's worst pathologies. When given the opportunity to speak for themselves, they report feeling as fearful of mere survival as they are feared, as threatened as they are threatening.Living to Tell About It is the first book to look beyond the statistics and perceptions at the real lives and experiences of most young black men in America today. Over the course of a year, journalist Darrell Dawsey traveled across the country, listening to a mosaic of young men talk about their childhoods, relationships with parents and women, sexuality, self-respect, spirituality, ambitions, the race that binds them and the diversity of class, education and geography that distinguishes them. Interweaving interview material with powerful reflections on his own background as a single-parent child of the inner city and a young father, Dawsey portrays the trials, tragedies, and triumphs of young black men in a society where they have been the targets of disenfranchisement, neglect, racism, and hostility.The result is a compelling portrait of a generation facing the manifold challenges and dilemmas of black manhood-and living to tell about it."From the Trade Paperback edition.
