The second novel from the internationally acclaimed author of A Different Drummer

3 stars out of 5

"[T]here is plenty to recommend in its moving, honest account of a young black man trying to find his way in a hostile world"

Though his second novel lacks the seamless time transitions and narrative flow of A Different Drummer, there is plenty to recommend in its moving, honest account of a young black man trying to find his way in a hostile world... Both his novels confirm his reputation as a thoughtful, inventive writer who was well before his time.
