Just because genetic admixture enhances the health of a population doesn't mean it is easy for the human beings who choose to build mixed families to create a sane healthy environment for the children of these unions who themselves must venture in to a world colored by the ancient cultural values of their parents' families and the prejudices of the present day. Diane Farr creates a smart, fun but unblemished look at this reality from the perspective of a woman who has been one of these courageous souls and lives this challenge daily.”
Dr. Drew Pinsky, MD, Celebrity Rehab

However I am sorry to say I didn't enjoy the interludes where Diane interviewed other interractial couples (whom she got in contact with from her friends). While I can understand why she felt the need to include these I just felt like it detracted from the far more interesting story of Diane's romance with Seung. I also wished that Seung's POV could've somehow be included in this memoir. Being a asian male myself I would've liked to have known his feelings on dating a white woman (a actress no less) considering all the stereotypes about asian men in America.
Finally I didn't like the cover as I felt it didn't convey what the book was about. Why not a nice photo of Diane and Seung on the cover.
Overall though I enjoyed the book and hope Diane writes another one, maybe about raising interracial kids?
It was a quick read for me and made me think about some things I hadn't thought about before, which is always a good thing for me in a book.
We are in a pivotal time in our national history. How we face the globalization of our world will influence our successes going forward. One result of globalization and reduced cultural expectations is cross-racial marriage. After reading her book I found that I didn't really see race so much as what separates us, but culture. It seems to me skin color is not what actually defines our unique perspectives, but rather our historical adaptation to what at one point was physical separation from one another. That race is part of that is inevitable as people have chosen skin color as the symbol of other differences. But one only has to remember the holocaust of WWII, Bosnian and Serbian genocide, or ethnic murders in Africa to see race is only the most obvious way in which people attempt to distinguish themselves from others.
Yet the truth is, we are all much the same, in our pettiness and in our nobility.
