Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cleage's new novel reads like an African-American version of Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City." It is a book populated by numerous characters whose lives intersect and diverge, come together and draw apart. But instead of Maupin's San Francisco, the setting of Cleage's book is Atlanta.
