White teacher, black children: Paley approaches this largely unexplored minefield with candor and incisiveness. In this humane and beautifully written account, the wit and sureness of her observations are compelling. Repeatedly, she uses anecdotes to convey judgmental errors, tentative adjustments, barriers overcome, as well as a feel of the classroom and a quiet accumulation of insights into dealing with her pupils' - and her own - perceptions of race.
