New York Times best-selling author Cornel West is one of Americas most provocative and admired public intellectuals. Whether in the classroom the streets the prisons or the church Dr. Wests penetrating brilliance has been a bright beacon shining through the darkness for decades. Yet as he points out in this new memoir Ive never taken the time to focus on the inner dynamics of the dark precincts of my soul. That is until now. Brother West is like its author: brilliant unapologetic full of passion yet cool. This poignant memoir traces Wests transformation from a schoolyard Robin Hood into a progressive cultural icon. From his youthful investigation of the death shudder to why he embraced his calling of teaching over preaching from his three marriages and his two precious children to his near-fatal bout with prostate cancer West illuminates what it means to live as an aspiring bluesman in a world of ideas and a jazzman in the life of the mind. Woven together with the fibers of his lifelong commitment to the prophetic Christian tradition that began in Sacramentos Shiloh Baptist Church Brother West is a tale of a man courageous enough to be fully human living and loving out loud.
