Reviews

"Johnson, the celebrate novelist, short story writer, screenwriter and essayist, here combines a finely tuned sense of humor with a desire to probe questions that lie at the heart of a reflective existence ... His book is a small treasure, one to be read and considered and reread."
--New York Times Book Review

"Johnson's writing, filled with the sort of long, layered sentences you can get happily lost in, conveys a kindness; a sense that all of us (particularly in "Occupying Arthur Whitfield" and "Welcome to Wedgwood") have our own stories."
--Seattle Times

"Best known for his masterful novels and essays, Johnson wrote this rare story collection over a period of 13 years--resulting in a masterpiece ... Unflinching in his observations, Johnson ultimately offers a message of empowerment and hope."
--Oprah.com

"A treasure box."
--Newsday

"Charles Johnson deftly weaves the funny with the philosophical."
--Lion's Roar

"A modern master's latest array of glittering tales offers the pleasures and solace of storytelling."
--Kirkus, starred

"Arresting .. these are indelible moments that show Johnson to be a master of the short form. Highly recommended."
--Library Journal, starred

"These striking stories from National Book Award-winner Johnson (Middle Passage) span a wide range of time periods and cultures but are woven together with a subtle thread of compassion."
--Publishers Weekly

"This illuminating collection draws on Johnson's Buddhist faith, African American perspective, and aesthetic sensibilities."
--Booklist
