Survival Math: Notes on an All-American Family

Survival Math: Notes on an All-American Family

by Mitchell S. Jackson Author

Mitchell S. Jackson writes with nuance and brilliance about learning to survive in one of the whitest cities in America. When he first moved to Portland, Oregon, he learned how to do what he called survival math quickly, all while navigating violence, masculinity, sex work and more just to stay alive. Written in a lyrical, experimental style, this coming-of-age memoir is honest and compelling.
