Since the 1970’s, Margo Jefferson has commented on and interpreted contemporary American life. She has done so as a journalist, as a critic, as a privileged Black female writer. Now in her seventies, she uses her own past to understand the society that has shaped her. How do you make sense of what society believes you to be? And how do you make sense of what you believe yourself to be? Rather than writing a straightforward memoir, Jefferson uses her newest book, Constructing a Nervous System to bring alive a cast of characters.
