an amazing book i need to recommend - Ace of Spades by David Matthews

this is my first posting. hello! my name is sarah, and i'm half black half jewish. my mother is jewish.

A friend of mine recommended a book called 'Ace of Spades' by David Matthews (you can find it here: http://tr.im/iGsu), and I love it so much. I'm half way through it and I can't believe how great this book is. It's so funny and personable. There are moments where I have to put the book down and just burst out laughing. But wow, is it well written! David Matthews is poetic with his words. Truly astounding.

Here's a brief description from The New Yorker:
The son of a Zionist white mother and a Malcolm X-admiring black father, Matthews, in this memoir, is a boy without a race in a city, Baltimore, that requires him to choose one. The story of racial pinball is not entirely unfamiliar: the black kids reject him as too light-skinned, the whites as too broad-nosed. But Matthews displays improvisational verve—blacks are "burnished" and "browned butter," and whites are anything from "alabaster" to "a puffy marshmallow in Baltimore’s steaming cup of cocoa"—and narrates with the vigor of a movie script. Indeed, it is on television that, as a child, he finds the clarity he yearns for. "I was a living contradiction of elements that shouldn’t have been," he writes at one point, whereas on TV "everything was black, or white, and a lot like life."

Really, i can't recommend this book more! I love it! Have you read it?


here's the author, david matthews:

Who I am

You asked us to describe a little about ourselves and our decision to be Atheist, so here I am:

I know I haven't believed in god for a really long time, but I never before thought about why.  I've been discontent for so many years, but I just settled for what I had and didn't ask any questions.  Until I read "letters to a Christian Nation" by Sam Davis. 

Now I can't stop reading or thinking about evolution vs. creationism.  Reading "The God Delusion" has set the tone for the rest of my life.  I have a lot to say on the subject in my journal, so please feel free to read it.  I just started writing again after years of not writing, and I'm so glad I did.  I had no idea I had so much unrest in my heart until I picked up that pen and it all just started pouring out.  

I'm looking for feedback on my ideas and I look forward to starting a discussion based on my musings.  Please take a look at my journal, I promise it will be worth your time!
