520    "At once incendiary and icy, mischievous, and provocative,
       celebratory and elegiac, a deeply felt meditation on race,
       sex, and American culture through the prism of the 
       author's rarefied upbringing and education among a black 
       elite concerned to distance itself from whites and the 
       black generality, while tirelessly measuring itself 
       against both. Born in 1947 in upper-crust black Chicago--
       her father was for years head of pediatrics at Provident, 
       at the time the nation's oldest black hospital; her mother
       was a socialite--Margo Jefferson has spent most of her 
       life among (call them what you will) the colored 
       aristocracy, the colored elite, the blue-vein society. 
       Since the nineteenth century they have stood apart, these 
       inhabitants of Negroland, "a small region of Negro America
       where residents were sheltered by a certain amount of 
       privilege and plenty." Reckoning with the strictures and 
       demands of Negroland at crucial historical moments--the 
       civil rights movement, the dawn of feminism, the fallacy 
       of post-racial America--Jefferson brilliantly charts the 
       twists and turns of a life informed by psychological and 
       moral contradictions. Aware as it is of heart-wrenching 
       despair and depression, this book is a triumphant paean to
       the grace of perseverance. (With 8 pages of black-and-
       white illustrations.)"--|cProvided by publisher.
