The Grace of Silence: A Memoir

In The Grace of Silence: A Memoir, Michelle Norris, one of the hosts of NPR’s All Things Considered radio program, writes of the “hidden conversations” about race that are taking place in America.

She begins by listening in on the conversations of others, but her search takes her to her own family, where she has to confront the fact that conversations in her own family had not always been open and forthright.

Ms. Norris’ excellent research is enhanced by the thoughtful, honest observation of not only strangers, but also those who are closest to her heart.
