Gus Edwards presents a collection of monologues on Black life written in a voice that reflects the modern African American experience. We meet a host of characters of all ages making their way as best they can in this last part of the 20th century. β€œAn astounding treasure trove […] offering a trenchant, compassionate vision of black life in all its startling diversity and universality.” β€” Douglas Turner Ward
