"This career-spanning collection of work by Wideman, with a revelatory foreword by critic and scholar Walton Muyumba, offers a stunning showcase of Wideman's range... If there were any doubts Wideman belongs to the American canon, this puts them to bed."--Publisher's Weekly, starred review

Through vividly portrayed voices, evocative settings, and expansive themes, these tales put Wideman's talent for exploring the indelible connections that unite generations on full display ... This is an essential collection for both readers familiar with Wideman's oeuvre and those just discovering this modern master."--Booklist, starred review
