Reviews

"This remarkably accomplished first novel about growing up as a "nice Negro" in conservative Indianapolis, Ind., is sure to put Pinckney, a journalist and critic, in the front ranks of new writers this season. Writing with passion and an elegant wit, Pinckney conveys the dedication, pride and hypocrisy that formed the society of "upper shadies" in the 1950s and '60s." - Publishers Weekly
