"In both this collection of short fiction and in HUE AND CRY McPherson demonstrates why and how he became the first African-American, in 1978, to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. That he was born and raised in Savannah is one more random act of literary kindness that history and fate have bestowed upon the city."
