The Other Side of Prospect, by Nicholas Dawidoff

Staff Pick

This page-turner is really three books in one: a social commentary on how America's southern racism bathes northern cities; a true-crime story about a senseless neighborhood murder; and an intimate account of a young Black man trying his best to get his life back after nine years in prison. All this happens only a stone's throw from Yale's idyllic campus in New Haven, Connecticut. They say your zip code shouldn't decide your destiny.  In this case, it's shocking what a difference a few streets can make.
