Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like the blues — sweet, sad and full of truth — this masterly work of fiction rocks us with powerful emotions. In it are anger and pain, but above all, love — affirmative love of a woman for her man, the sustaining love of a black family. Fonny, a talented young artist, finds himself unjustly arrested and locked in New York's infamous tombs. But his girlfriend, Tish, is determined to free him, and to have his baby, in this starkly realisitic tale... a powerful endictment of American concepts of justice and punishment in our time.
