Though it seems - through the clear descriptions of his childhood- that Eady could easily slip dangerously into a voice of hatred and negativity, his works remain positive and bright. Honest words regarding racism, violence, & the unavoidable issue of class subjugation characterize a man keen observation. I enjoyed Eady's approach to problems most people would prefer to ignore.
