The Good Lord Bird (James McBride)

I was born a colored man and don't you forget it. But I lived as a colored woman for seventeen years.

I put in the second line because it's important to the story. This is easily the best book I read this year, and it took me to the last bit of December to get to it. I think there'll be one more book and then it's time to decide whether this first words experiment was interesting.
