In these eight masterful stories, Austin Clarke has caught the sorrowful and sometimes sweet longing for a home in the heart that torments the dislocated in any big city. These are private lives and intimate pains made public because the city itself is in exuberant upheaval, but the rawness of the moment is always redeemed by the elegance of Clarke’s prose and the innate sympathy of his eye.
"Clarke may be one of the two or three most talented black writers in North America.... His work is distinguished by a high elegance, a powerful, unique use of language" –Norman Mailer
