This was quirky but good. The main character is a 91 year old black man with some memory issues. He lives on his own but is looked after by relatives - some better, some worse. The story goes back and forth between the present, as he prepares to die and leave a legacy, and the past, when life was tricky for a young, black, poor, southern boy. It's ultimately a story of redemption.
