"The Good Lord Bird," by James McBride

Illustration for Amity Gaige's review of The Good Lord Bird by James McBride for the Chronicle this past week. The book is about a young slave boy who gets freed and whisked up by John Brown, who mistakes him for a girl. He survives under this assumed identity, and the book seems to bring up questions about what it meant during the Civil War to be white, black, male, female, etc. Read the review here!
