Description of book: "As recalled in Honky, Dalton Conley’s childhood has all of the classic elements of growing up in America. But the fact that he was one of the few white boys in a mostly black and Puerto Rican neighborhood on Manhattan’s Lower East Side makes Dalton’s childhood unique. “With precision and poetry, this...absorbing volume [gives] readers a rare opportunity for insight into the complexities of race in America.”—San Francisco Chronicle"
