The Last Black Man

Author: 

M. B. Munroe

This is a gripping and harrowing story about a successful British man attending his first polo match. No, really, it is- because the successful man is the black son of working class parents whose sacrifices he is only now understanding, and whose life is not at all as secure and idyllic as it seems. The action in this masterfully told story is primarily in the protagonist's head, and the result is a story I will not soon forget.

Favorite Thing: 
The author's ability to make the reader feel and really understand the protagonist's internal turmoil.
