Kings Blood Royal by Sinclair Lewis
A story that deals with a successful white man who well into his life discovers that he is part black, quite a controversial subject for 1947. A very honest and masterful tale of a man trying to connect with his “blackness” and the society and heritage to which he belongs, including insights into the racism of the time and the relationships between blacks and whites.
