“Every once in a while a book comes along at a time when its message is most needed. Garon Wade’s memoir is, without a doubt, one of those books.”
—Patrício de Sousa
“Garon Wade’s memoir is a welcome addition to today’s important conversation about race & globalism. His story is one not often experienced, let alone told, of the challenges as well as the immense beauty that can result from the colliding of races, ethnicities, nations, and worlds. Told with compassion for the complexity and diversity of the human experience and a passion for a life lived across the globe, YABWTM will transport you, teach you, and move you.”
—Anna Kawar
Three years into Sri Lanka’s bloody civil war, an abandoned baby ends up in the
adopted arms of a white American couple living in a Colombo home that doubles as a CIA safe house. They take him on an extraordinary journey around the globe as he’s launched into the diplomatic world of ambassadors, UN workers, and international schools.
Each summer he returns to the bayous of his parents’ small-town Louisiana, as exotic to him as the golden South African savannahs of his early childhood. He’s curious to know this America, a country he may someday be a part of. But with sincere love comes racism wrapped in the drawling sweetness of his grandparents’ good intentions.
Garon Wade’s transcendent memoir is an international coming-of-age story that
explores how the heart of an orphan grew to love a world that didn’t always love him back. You’ll Always Be White To Me asks us who we are, what our common humanity is, and if it’s possible to look beyond our color and find our way there.
