Editorial Reviews

"All eight men and all eight stories stand as beautifully, pitifully, terribly true. Some readers will be shocked by it for it presents straightforwardly a brilliant Black American's point ofview. Many more readers will be uplifted and encouraged by it....All the way through this is fine, sound, good, honorable writing rich with insight and understanding, even when occasionally twisted by sorrow."
