Description

Julie Lythcott-Haims, the New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult, has written a different kind of book this time out — a deeply personal, biting, and affecting account of her life growing up as a biracial Black woman in America in Real American: A Memoir.


A courageous, achingly honest meditation on what it means to come to consciousness as a mixed-race child and adult in a nation where Black lives weren’t meant to matter.
— Michelle Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of The New Jim Crow


Julie Lythcott-Haims served as the dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University, where she received the Dinkelspiel Award for her contributions to the undergraduate experience. She holds a BA from Stanford, a JD from Harvard Law, and an MFA in writing from the California College of the Arts.
