It was a full decade and a half ago that Sapphire's disarming novel Precious first struck emotional chords in readers and two years ago when its film adaptation first hit Sundance screens. (The movie earned six Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture.) This long-requested sequel tracks Jamal Abdul Jones, the troubled son who survived Precious, following him as he bounces painfully from situation to situation. Like Precious, The Kid displays the hard-won authenticity of down-at-the-heels urban experience.
