Acclaimed author William Henry Lewis, whose fiction has appeared in numerous top American journals, including Best American Short Stories, tackles issues of racism, family, and loss in his poignant 10-story collection. In these tales, a 14- year-old boy meets his father for the first time, a free spirit returns home with her thoughts still on her wanderings, and a young black professor nervously gives a young white woman a ride. Lewis' unique style quietly accents the connection of history and the present.

Professional reviews

"Lewis weaves a multifaceted gem that illuminates a contemporary African-American view of family, place, and culture. Each story in this audiobook is presented by a single narrator. The four talented actors are cast in such a way as to give an overall virtuoso performance. Just as each story is unique, so too are the tellings. Dion Graham narrates as if he is empathic. His voicing of the emotions of a woman on the brink brings tears to the eyes. Lizan Mitchell expresses the existential weariness of a man just trying to get by. This audiobook poignantly reflects on loss, racial turbulence, and multigenerational family life in a manner that will change the listener's perspective on those topics forever. P.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
