This book is awesome. I read the original autobiography by Alex Haley last year, and was quickly drawn into the character that is Malcolm Little. Such a layered character, who’s memory and influence still live on to this day. My sweet girlfriend, bless her, alerted me to this up and coming release, and somehow before I knew it, I had pre-ordered my first book ever! Manning Marable delivers a forensic, no nonsense biographical account of Malcolm X. Marable’s work is without controversy, in it’s attempt to dispel certain myths about X, and goes some way in introducing some jaw dropping revelations. I won’t spoil it for you – it’s a must read for all you die hard Malcolm X fans!
