really liked it
Read in January, 2009

A story worth reading.

p.231 "I expected him to give me book. And I wanted a book. I needed a gratuitous, multigeneration tale of colored-people woe that would assure the white reader and the aspiring-to-be white reader that everything would be okay despite the preponderance of evidence that nothing is ever okay."
