Reflections of anxious African American is a memoir and a story. It begins with the author expressing his experience and journey as a father and how it shaped him into the man he is today. Eric’s honesty is reflected in the retelling, and his behaviour towards his son sends him into a self-reflecting mode, letting us know about his upbringing and so much more.
What I particularly enjoyed about this book was that everyone could take something away from reading it. The subtle supplementary humour was pleasantly added. I would have preferred a more detailed descriptive nature of the events; however, what did exist, and the emphasis of the writing, was on the measures that had passed.
Every person’s encounter is different to the other, and so my interpretation of the story was based on the author’s perspective and input.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read reflections and memoirs.Tweet
