Editorial Reviews

Review

Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide is the best of both worlds. It is not only academic, nor is it only commercial. Sarah Ratliff and Bryony Sutherland have indeed found a way to take a subject that will appeal to everyone, from interracial families, to the multiracial population, to non-fiction readers, and to academics. It is a book that needs to be read by anyone interested in diversity and the multiracial view point.

The 24 people who write about their lives in Being Biracial are as varied as there are names for the multiracial crowd, which is getting larger every day. I was very surprised as I read about how much emphasis is placed on the physical traits of these people. I was delighted that there were no "poor multiracial me" stories, and that people came from everywhere with varied experiences, and that they all very clearly dealt with all of their racial combinations.

This is not only for the interracial family, the multiracial person, or the people who tell their stories. This book is for everyone who needs to understand more about race in the world today, and wouldn't that be all of us?

Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide is unique among edited collaborative works of multiracial identity. This book presents a broad survey of mixed identities from multiple countries giving a truly global perspective. In addition there are annotations for external references. There are even photos included of contributors to support the words that describe what is essentially a visual phenomenon. In these regards this work is a handy reference for anyone looking for an introduction to the multiracial experience.

The individual contributions do not appear to be organized in any particular manner and no consistent theme seems to emerge. Thus, the book may be consumed in pieces by opening to any chapter with a topic of interest. If there is any common thread, it would be that most contributors, regardless of the trauma in their past, appear to have a positive sense of self today and an optimistic vision of the future. This helps change the narrative of being biracial from being tragic to possibly being heroic.

From the Author


Our authors hail from a dozen countries spanning five continents, and encompass a wide range of racial and ethnic mixtures. Given the political climate of the day, our purpose in writing and publishing this book was to encourage people to challenge their assumptions when presented with race and ethnicity in combination.

We hope the stories within Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide will change your perspectives and open your eyes and hearts as they have ours.
