Island in the City: A Memoir is composed of a series of interrelated essays about identity by Micah McCrary. These essays interrogate what it means to be black, queer, and middle-class, even as they question the stability and meaning of those categories themselves. In Micah McCrary’s Island In the City: A Memoir (University of Nebraska Press, September ), the relevance of this memoir is timely as it takes a close look at not just racial and cultural differences, but the realities of sexual orientation and economic placement.
