Throughout the last fifty years, author Edward Nichols has spent much of his interior life consumed with attempts to fill in the blanks and contradictions in his family history, especially the status of his father, who left the family in 1943.
In Fade to White, Nichols shares his personal and family history against the backdrop of his father's disappearance and how it affected every aspect of his life. For years, no one knew if Nichols' father was dead or alive. This memoir follows Nichols' upbringing in the small, isolated colored world of the Bronx in the 1940s and 1950s, to medical school abroad, to his long-running medical practice and helping pediatric patients, to advocating and supporting his daughters.
Honest and poignant, Fade to White narrates his life story with its ups and downs and triumphs and challenges. It tells of one family's coming together-an epilogue of one man's search for his father.
