Author of "Real American" Julie Lythcott-Haims shares her memoir about growing up biracial in America.

Real American (Henry Holt) is a fearless memoir in which beloved How to Raise an Adult author Julie Lythcott-Haims pulls no punches in her recollections of growing up as a biracial black woman in America. Bringing a poetic sensibility to her prose, Lythcott-Haims briskly and stirringly evokes her personal battle with the low self-esteem that American racism routinely inflicts on people of color. Real American also expresses, through Lythcott-Haims’s path to self-acceptance, the healing power of community in overcoming the hurtful isolation of being incessantly considered "the other."
