Review:
A coming of age story about a gifted and sensitive young man who faces the pain of being black in America during the 40s and 50s. Increasing poverty and personal conflicts came close to destroying him during his adolescence. Here is a revealing, fascinating glimpse into the heart of a premiere author.
