Nice review of the book today on the Trib’s Web site. And I don’t just mean because it was favorable. For those keeping score at home, I got a mixed/negative review in the L.A. Times a few weeks ago, author of which disliked the book for some of the same reasons the Trib reviewer liked it: Namely, that I spend a fair amount of space and calories explaining the civil rights context of the 1940s and early 1950s. (Such as it was.) More than any reviewer I’ve seen, the Tribber seemed to understand what I was trying to do with all that—and he did a great job of conveying why it matters.
