The Confession of Dorothy Danner

Product Details


In searching for the history of desegregation in Mobile, Richard Pride encountered one of its players and came to know her well. Somehow more than the sum of its parts, the resulting book is a multivocal text, fascinating in its construction of layers of "truth," so that the reader is drawn into negotiation with Dorothy Danner's life and must help to construct its meaning. I know of no other book that better challenges our conceptions not only of the roles that blacks and whites played in desegration, but also of how the story of a human life may be told. --Nancy Walker, author of The Disobedient Writer: Women and Narrative Tradition Stunning. . . . I turn away from these pages haunted by this woman. Pride brings another person alive in words, recreates that person's historical moments, and isolates the epiphanies in her life, showing in the process how this individual's life story is interpreted differently by the significant persons in her life. This perceptive study displays impeccable scholarship. It will be a model for all future work. --Norman Denzin, author of Interpretive Biography and editor of The Sociological Quarterly
