Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a brilliant new novel, American Book Award winner Naylor revisits the neighborhood that first brought her the respect and affection of readers everywhere. The Men of Brewster Place explores the lives of seven men, and gives readers new insights into the original women characters first met in the best-selling 1982 novel, The Women of Brewster Place, which Oprah Winfrey made into a hugely successful television series.

Whether telling the story of Basil Michael, who finds redemption through his marriage to a woman he doesn't love for the sake of her children, or of Reverend Moreland T. Woods, whose morality has been obscured by his ambition, or of Eugene Turner, whose homosexuality he can no longer hide from himself or the wife he loves, Naylor describes characters that are emblematic both of the issues universal to all men and of experiences specific to the African-American man. In so doing, Naylor gives us a context for understanding real problems of our culture, as well as a richly satisfying reading experience.
