|Plot Summary of What's Going On|
|"Nathan McCall's autobiography is more like a commentary on what it is like growing up as a black man in the inner city. His effective telling of his own life is highly reflective and insightful to fully understanding the harshness of life for the black male. Although he has overcome a hard beginning and achieved a degree of "success," McCall never forgets his beginnings and lets the reader experience all the trials and tribulations, the peaks and valleys, and the humor and pathos of such an existence."
Reginald D. Garrard, Resident Scholar
