Here is a stunning debut novel by a new voice in African-American fiction. Pacing the decline and recovery of an Atlanta family like a true storyteller, Faye McDonald Smith offers a detailed portrait of the dreams and fears of all middle-class African-Americans who face systematic racism compounded by the harsh economic realities of life in the nineties.
