Set in a diner where the food isn't very good and the ambience veers between heaven and hell, this bestselling novel from the author of Mama Day and The Women of Brewster Place is a feast for the senses and the spirit. "A virtuoso orchestration of survival, suffering, courage and humor."--New York Times Book Review.

About the Author:

Gloria Naylor was born in New York City in 1950. She received her B.A. in English from Brooklyn College and her M.A. in Afro-American studies from Yale. Her books include The Women of Brewster Place, which won both the American Book Award and the National Book Award for first novel, and was also adapted into a television movie by Oprah Winfrey; Linden Hills; Bailey's Cafe; and The Men of Brewster Place. She taught writing and literature at George Washington University, New York University, Boston University, and Cornell University. She died in 2016.

From AudioFile:

An odd group of people congregate at Bailey's Cafe, a haven anywhere, or everywhere, for broken people to either heal or end their lives. The action takes place in 1948 but goes back in time, sometimes centuries, and concerns mostly "colored" people, down on their luck. Narrator Augustus Williamson has a velvet glove of a voice and gives a wonderfully expressive reading of the main character. Of the four voices, two are very good, one below par. Uncorrected mistakes detract from what might otherwise have been an excellent production. E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
