The Good Lord Bird

James McBridge
The Good Lord Bird
McBride, who I worked with briefly at The Washington Post back in the day, brings a reporter's eye and curiosity, a historian's reach and a writer's fine touch to a story of slavery and abolition and upheaval seen through the eyes of a child -- a girl who's really a boy. Surprisingly, it also manages to make me laugh.
