On the contrary, he and his siblings grew up, despite being poverty-stricken, to take on occupations such as doctors, teachers, lawyers, and journalists. This very scenario appears peculiar and odd to the general, but snugs itself well in The Color of Water ; A contentious and suspenseful memoir where James McBride, the main character, pieces the lost fragments of his unknown past. James does so in recent chapters by embarking on a travel across Virginia and New
