Excerpt from The Hit: A Novel

Sister Clarisse lived alone in a small two-room apartment near Seventh Avenue. Her husband had been a deacon at Little Calvary Baptist Church before he passed on to glory. Both Sister Clarisse and Hubert's Wife Gertrude were very active in the affairs of Little Calvary. They were members of both The Willing Workers' Society and The La dies' Auxiliary. Sometimes on Sundays they were referred to from the pulpit as pillars of the church, but to Hubert they were as different as night and day. Sister Clarisse was the kind of woman he should have married: sweet, gentle, and, most important, very feminine. She did not give a man a hard way to go, by contradicting him, arguing with him all the time. Gertrude was a thorn in a man's side, bothersome, constantly after him to do this or that. Hubert firmly believed that a man ought to have peace from his old lady and not a lot of lip.
