Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Her, Cherry Muhanji, 1990, United States, NOVEL

"...Like jazz that reaches out to both heart and gut, it is deep, throaty, and rich; its language and characters wail, leap, glide, and moan as Cherry Muhanji describes Detroit in the late 1950s and in particular a place called John R. Street...Whether day or night, John R. Street and its inhabitants are painfully, angrily, vibrantly alive, fighting a world that prefers light skin over dark, heterosexuality over homosexuality, money over spirit..."

(E.B., p. 252)
