    schema:description ""When Kenneth McClane's first collection of essays, 'Walls,' was published in 1991, Choice Magazine announced that '[these] essays break new ground in the tradition of African American personal narratives.' Many of these pieces have appeared in anthologies, including 'The best American essays,' 'The art of the essay,' and 'Bearing witness: selections from African-American autobiography in the twentieth century.' Now, the University of Notre Dame Press is proud to bring 'Walls' back into print, making these profoundly important essays about the experience of being both African American and middle-class in contemporary America available to a wide new readership." --"@en ;
