"evangelical pentecostal church" Discussed on KQED Radio

"I wanted to be a writer right new and but as I was struggling to come into an understanding of of my identity like race sexuality gender and really struggling with depression and self hate the honest the impulses collided and so often when I was younger I would stand in dangerous rooms figurative and literal yeah because I was like well I can write about this it does not mean I'm instant control of what's going on and so I struggle with that and so you know but that's a problem that's a problem and so I realized I wanted to write the book when I felt I had a different intention so you're writing yourself out of the room right and myself out of the role and explaining why the other pizza so it so it is for other people and again I think there's something that all of us can take from this point but it sounds to me like what I suspected you also wrote this really for you as much as for us sure I think you know certainly a memoir right you're going into your own personal history and and making sense of it and and the challenges of writing a memoir it's just instructive because you have to be a fully fleshed yourself out in other characters in the landscape I can just say yeah I grew up in Lewisville and just you've got it right most people never be endless will necessarily so I have to bring it to life and that creative act you learn from it you like it you know and then more memory start to come in and if you know memory is an unreliable narrator I think of it as a kind of trickster figure so you really have your grappling with your memories you know we incorrectly remember things intentionally and unintentionally crap all the time and so in the you know the the five years in earnest that I was writing the book from the time I sold it and then publishing you no I'm glad I'm a slow writer because it allow old memories to come up and have time to really get what you had to work through that I mean I you did you bring up a couple of the points about writing memoirs first thing is that sometimes your own memory is unreliable you're an unreliable narrator we are all the round realizing how certain are you since this is presented to us as your story how certain are you that your memories are by the time we read it reliable I think they're reliable in the sense that I'm pretty straightforward in terms of my own reliability and I say you know there's some really important hi high intensity moments in the book and I go I don't remember what happened next right I don't remember what she said however stations we are hounded reflect what happened is that your favorite composite character right right right it's a true story yeah and you know in a store you have to get and that's why I try to be candid about what I don't remember because I'm already asking a lot of you as a reader in that I'm using fictive techniques right I'm I'm creating dialogue right and so I'm trying to do my best but yeah you try to rein it in that's why you know I try to be a very intentional in sparing with dialogue because listen most of us we're lucky if we can remember a few words from a specific conversation happened today today morning right as opposed to going back many years later so the other part about writing a memoir that I I've not written a memoir and and I would imagine it would be difficult for a lot of reasons but it least because you're forced to access things that you just as soon not remember or access mmhm so how how much self editing did you do of the difficult parts of your story having read this book a couple times it doesn't seem like you left very much out work or anything that was difficult let me say this when he didn't shy away from recounting things that were difficult in fact that almost seems to have been the point did what's the point yeah I it's it's the the idea of of difficult subject matter if you I understand it as a reader yeah I do and I and I recorded the audio book earlier this summer and I can tell you reading the audiobook was a totally different experience harder or easier harder that's not reading the audio book was the first time I got choked out saying the words out loud signal my gusting with that pastor says yeah same thing same grandmother and I or we said to each other that was difficult in the in the last chapter that was the only time but as a writer I don't feel that way what was difficult was writing about my mother she's not alive anymore right so I felt you know I love her and I want to honor that love education but if she's not she she passed while she passed away in twenty eleven right so she's of course not C. right yes I feel respectful to what would she say about this how would she feel this week we talk again before we came out to the doctor about the fact your grandmother who is a significant character in this book your uncle who is a less significant character but is important yeah they're both still with us so whether they read the book they've read the book your mother never got the opportunity right what would she say about what she knew that I was going to write a book when she died when I was in graduate school she called me right and she said so I told I told grandma you're writing a memoir one day and explain what it was and I was like and I like froze in my tracks on college campuses and I said where I was in graduate school at Rutgers and I said what did you say and she said oh she said that's what realtors right and that was it so I think you know my mom was aware of my intentions that was a go down the line you know it's hard you know I hope I made her proud one of my goals was to make it clear to the reader that my mother my grandmother they're not literary devices right they are people right there women black women in America fighting for their own lives and I wanted to tell the story and of course they're part of what goes on but I wanted the reader to understand that they have their own stories and if my mom was alive if you go oh maybe I'll write my story yeah well I think you're unsparing in your portrayal of your mother and grandmother just to stay on this one for a second and I don't mean that in a negative sense I think that you're honest about and you're not cruel to them you're not presenting them in a negative light then presenting them as who they are we're all flawed we all have challenges we all deal with them the best we can have your mother's life was extraordinary this for one thing it gave you as you very clearly say in the book you are who you are because of who she was yes I think there's a late in the book there's a line that says something to the effect of our mothers are who we all are right our mothers are why we are here while we're here we're all products of the year old somebody's kid yeah and I think that in that respect there's a lot of admiration for how she raised you in who she allowed you to become and how you became who you were because of her but at the same time it's an honest portrayal of the struggles their mother had yeah and the difference is that you have with your grandmother which are material in this book as well I think you gotta respect that yeah if you know they may be a male uncomfortable by seeing on the page but not enough yeah I mean you know it's interesting I I talked to my grandmother a few times about the book while I was right while you were writing him and she's very interesting she is never attempted to reframe make excuses Ryan told the story she if she says yes and when she read it about the first the first third of the book where for my grandmother and I in particular it's really fraught I never told my mom about what happened that summer with my grandmother and I it's in the sentence was always say in short what for the benefit of people explain what we're talking short short so my mom practice nutrient Buddhism she chanted nominee who rank echo you know Tina Turner you know you might you know know that if you if you know about Tina Turner's life and and the rest of our family super do not practice nature but as of right very you know the opposite end of this year about as far away you know devoutly Christian in different different denominations and and it was some of my earliest memories are of my family arguing like and being short enough to sit under the table I just remember seeing everyone yelling and shouting about god and hell and by the time I'm a teenager in the book you see me go home for the go to Memphis for the summer as my mom a single parent often sent me home where your grandmother let my grandmother lived in Memphis and I'm you know we were used to going to church every Sunday and I didn't mind it but that summer she started going to like an evangelical Pentecostal church as opposed to like the black Baptist church I was used to that was a change and you know I'm a teenager there and listen any care giver anyway any teacher mentor listen to me it's it's it it's scary realising your your kid is now becoming this other entity you know they're getting hold their talking back there making choices it's a lot in America is a lot so I understand her anxiety and I think she responded to it by saying we're going to get you to churches north Baltimore churches more church is an answer yet and so we were going to church suddenly I don't three four nights a week not closing Sunday mornings you know it was just a lot as I thought it was like you do but you don't regret looking back that you don't begrudge her I don't regret Jr it was a mistake it culminates in a terrible mistake because at the end of the summer she takes me to the front of the church takes me up to this man that I did not know and I remember thinking about that we've never even spoken yeah you know and she says this is my grandson site his mother is Buddhist and he just nodded like that was all the things you would ever need to know about me and my mother who we also absolutely had not met right and he just started to pray and he said god this boy's mother has gone down the path of Satan and decided to drive him down to right and speaking of dialogue I do remember everything he said that that I remember for the rest of my life I'll be dead and I still remember the event he said make her suffer yeah and he just goes on in this elaborate curse you know rain your planes make her sick so that she will suffer and realize she's down the wrong path and come back to the church and and bring her son with him with her amen amen that was the player which was a curse of an inside draw the distinction because oh my god what cruelty right and I don't care what you believe in but if you're trying to persuade someone about your religion or life philosophy that's not the way to give a **** about my point was simply to say that your grandmother did wish this on I think I think I talk about this in the book if you had like as to put your hand on the Bible and testify you know why did you just do that I think she would have said because I love my grandson right because I'm trying to save his soul and that's that's why that part of the book there are heralding terrifying sections in the book but for me that's the section that is most painful because it's an act of love right and I think often and we need to talk about this more often we hurt scare or harm one another out of luck in the name right you know I mean we you know America is scary you know certainly if you are raising a black kid certainly if you're raising a gay kid since I've been doing you know this this book tour for the last few weeks you know moms have come up to me and they talk about Matthew Shepard when they talk about RT on a Jefferson young twenty eight women in fort worth it was just time calendar like I am scared and I you know and sometimes when we're scared like my mother you know we get silent my mother and I had a vibrant relationship but her response I think to fear about having a gay black son was that she just couldn't talk about sexuality yeah I was the one silent for my grandmother she responds was proactive right choose like okay I'm save a soul I take to take him to church more charges she also said this book is in essence a book about you coming to terms with and better understand who you are yes right yeah and when I said earlier that there was something universal about it you know I said here.

"Welcome thank you and congratulations on this I think it's an enormous accomplishment of this book as I shared with you before we came out I don't like anything I'm not moved by anything okay only closed off okay your Elsa this idea well okay hold on a second time I read this book I got teary because I really think that it is as moving a story even though your story is not everybody's story everybody story is not your story the back of the second the universality of it the fact that we all see in ourselves a time in our lives we were trying to figure out who we were because really that's what this yes that isn't that's the work that's what the book is about why did you decide to write basic question arm I mean I think like many writers you know we write to understand we right because you know we're curious and interested in something that happened yeah something that I struggled with though as I was growing up and you see this a bit in the book that I I knew I wanted to be a writer right new and but as I was struggling to come into an understanding of of my identity like race sexuality gender and really struggling with depression and self hate yes honest the impulses
