The Invisible Line by Daniel J. Sharfstein - DNF
Daniel J. Sharfstein
The Penguin Press
330 pgs + End Notes.
This book chronicles the lives of three black families that, for various reasons, decided their lives would be better if they passed as white. It's a topic that I'm fully committed to learning more about. But I couldn't finish the book at this time.
Sharfstein's writing is detailed and insightful with a touch of humor. Unfortunately, even though I set aside three days to read this only slightly longer than 300 page tome, I couldn't get into it. I need more time and less distractions.
I will return to this book in early summer but it's just not the right book for me right now. Please stop by some of the blogs below for reviews and stop by the publisher's site to read an excerpt!
