The first book by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Between the World and Me, a stylish, original, and moving memoir about fathers and sons.

Coates grew up in the crack-and-blood-soaked 1980’s in America’s murder capital, Baltimore, with seven siblings, four mothers, and one highly eccentric father: Paul Coates, a larger-than-life Vietnam Vet cum Black Panther cum polygamous Afrocentric scholar whose mission was to sprint his rambunctious brood across the deadly minefield of adolescence and into college. This is the story of a family of daring improvisers, the myths that sustained them in a dark age, and the eternal struggle for peace between fathers and sons.
