Perpetual Hell: A Memoir by Wendy Othello is the story of Wendy, an African who was born in America and raised in white society. Wendy's life was good - she was not born into slavery, and not sold as a child to some old man who abused her. She learned at a very young age that she should not harm others and realized that life is not always fair. Wendy was born with a learning disability and she speaks about the times we live in where human nature has not evolved with technology. The memoir speaks about the author's perception of life, how the history of other countries do affect the lives of people, and the racial tensions in the USA. Wendy also speaks about the role of parents in a child's upbringing and how they all have become self-absorbed.

The memoir is honest and her experiences of the white and the black world of America gives glimpses into her life as a survivor. The views in the book are personal and these reveal the author's dreams of living in a world that has the age-old concepts of self-confidence, pride, and self-respect, as well as respect for others and the environment. The author's thoughts about the dominance of the white race have been expressed in the book unapologetically. Without trying to offend anyone, she tries to change the world with a book in which she has openly expressed her views and thoughts about living in a world where so many people feel isolated and lonely.
