Editorial Reviews

John Edgar Wideman
"With a first and freedom of a great traditional storyteller...Tony Caid Bambara takes a lot of chances. Her novel set in the Black section of a large southern city...but her characters also inhabit the non-linea, sacred space and sacred time of traditional African religion." -- The New York Times Book Review
Anne Tyler
"A powerful piece of writing." -- Washington Post Bookworld
