“A richness of language and observation pervades this collection of short stories by a black writer about real black people” (The New York Times Book Review).
Award-winning playwright Ed Bullins received the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for his play The Taking of Miss Janie, and is also renowned for such works as In the Wine Time and Clara’s Ole Man. In this collection of his early short fiction, he explores themes of loneliness and despair and the African American experience in beautifully crafted stories.
“For true students and fans of American and African American literature of the 1960s and ’70s, Ed Bullins is one of our indisputable heavyweight champs. ” —Kevin Powell, author and activist
