About Helene Cooper's The House at Sugar Beach: In Search of a Lost African Childhood, Publishers Weekly
says, "Journalist Cooper has a compelling story to tell: born into a wealthy, powerful, dynastic Liberian family descended
from freed American slaves, she came of age in the 1980s when her homeland slipped into civil war...Cooper combines deeply personal and wide-ranging political strands in her memoir. There's the halcyon early childhood in Africa, a history
of the early settlement of Liberia, an account of the violent, troubled years as several regimes are overthrown, and the
story of the family's exile to Americaā€¯. Call 510-881-7980 for info.
