A NovelBook - 2006
Black Marks is the powerful story of Georgette Collins, who wakes up one day in her early thirties to discover she has no past. Georgette has grown up in between worlds: black and white, gay and straight, wealthy and working class, West Indian and American. Georgette tries to piece together these fractured worlds from her grandmother's stories and her own fragmented memories, but she cannot make sense of her experiences. Each reinvention of herself is more disastrous than the last.
