Product Details


“A powerful piece of writing.” —Anne Tyler, The Washington Post

“With the force and freedom of a great traditional storyteller . . . Toni Cade Bambara takes a lot of chances. Her novel is set in the black section of a large Southern city . . . but her characters also inhabits the nonlinear, sacred space and sacred time of traditional African religion.” —John Edgar Wideman, The New York Times Book Review

“A book full of marvels.” —The New Yorker

“A hard-noised, wise, funny . . . always right-on novel.” —Los Angeles Times
