it was ok
Read in September, 2009

Read for school. About a man whose formerly drug-addicted brother is coming out of either jail or a recovery clinic (I don't remember). Baldwin has a wonderful writing style. I remember loving the rhythm of the beginning and how gradually he introduces what is happening. Also loved the section at the end where he describes the jazz music. Very beautiful descriptions with great flow and pacing. Got a little boring in the middle though, I think.
