BH: George Wilkerson reads and signs, You Don't Know the Half of It

"(You Don't Know) The Half of It" is the story of two people, one public (George) and one private (Bobbi), the latter in hiding until George was nearly 45 years old. The story of their lives is told by Bobbi who, though in the shadows for much of the time, was still a major influence. She takes us through George's childhood in Brooklyn, his college years, his time as Academic Dean of Austin Community College, then as Technical Writer for Shell Oil in Nigeria, Dell Computers, and Radian International (an environmental engineering company), and later as a writer and performer with the “Esther’s Follies” comedy troupe, and as a stand-up comic. Only able to 'escape' on a limited basis, Bobbi observes as along the way George struggles with accepting her—his "other self."
