Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For generations Eula Too’s family has been making a journey North, year after year, step by painful step; and she’s determined to be the one to make it all the way to Chicago. In and out of school, taking care of her fourteen brothers and sisters, she can see no way out. But when a new family burden threatens to overwhelm her, she at last leaves for the city, only to find that her life gets even tougher.

Ranging from the Deep South at the turn of the century, to a diverse contemporary town filled with people striving for a better life, Some People, Some Other Place is J. California Cooper at her irresistible, surprising best.

Synopsis:

A multigenerational saga chronicles the intertwined lives of the multi-ethnic residents of Dream Street in a town called Place, setting the lives of each individual and their family against the backdrop of American social and economic history and following one family from the Deep South of 1895, to rural Oklahoma and the industrial Midwest. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

J. California Cooper is the author of the novels Family and The Wake of the Wind and of seven collections of short stories, including Homemade Love, winner of the 1989 American Book Award. Among her numerous awards are the James Baldwin Writing Award and the Literary Lion Award from the American Library Association. She has one daughter and lives in Portland, Oregon.
