Description

Go, Go, Said the Bird adds new insight to a much-fabled locale--the Deep South during the sixties. Amid a cast of characters whose actions and ideas pound through the novel's pages, it is essentially the story of a young man, Bird Lassiter--a black boy with white skin. Trying to accept himself for what he cruelly learns he really is from his white "betters"--the Coy Watsons, the Klan--he suffers the derision not only of whites, but of his own race as well. In his own attempts to "pass," he is unable to come to terms with himself, his race, or those who would protect or destroy him. In the savage climax, Bird must at last make his dire choice.show more
