Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A novel that gives voice to the alienation and frustration of urban blacks during an era when Harlem was in vogue.

Synopsis:

At the same time, this stark but moving story touches on the central themes of the Harlem Renaissance, including the urgent need for unity and identity among blacks.
