9780758202789: Cry Me A River

Ernest Hill has always been a writer of great power and psychological depth, creating characters that resonate brilliantly beyond the boundaries of gender and race. Cry Me A River is a remarkable book. It runs deep and it runs fast. --Robert Olen Butler, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

An absentee father from a "no good" family, Tyrone Stokes was imprisoned for shooting a man in a convenience store. His wife saw her chance to end their marriage and raise their son, Marcus, on her own. Now Tyrone has returned to Brownsville, Louisiana, to discover that his boy needs help--help that Tyrone is desperate to give, if he can only figure out how.

Marcus has been convicted of the rape and murder of a young white girl. An execution date is set, and it's rumored that the Governor will refuse clemency. Tyrone is convinced Marcus is innocent, despite a stack of evidence against him--but he is also wracked by knowledge of all the ways he has failed his son. Against all odds, Tyrone sets out to keep Marcus alive--and perhaps put his family back together again.

"Hill is a skilled storyteller." --New York Times Book Review

"I couldn't put it down. . .Would fit well on the shelf with the works of Richard Wright and Chester Himes." --Ernest J. Gaines, bestselling author of A Lesson Before Dying

About the Author:

Ernest Hill was born in Oak Grove, Louisiana. He holds degrees from the University of California at Berkeley, Cornell University, and UCLA. He is the author of five novels, including "A Life for a Life", "Cry Me a River", "It's All About the Moon When the Sun Ain't Shining", and "A Person of Interest".

From Booklist:

At age 40, and after 10 years, Tyrone Stokes has been released from prison. He returns to his mother's home in Louisiana to learn that his 17-year-old son, Marcus, is in jail--on death row for the rape and murder of a young white girl. Tyrone does not really know his son nor has his wife, Pauline, allowed their son to communicate with him, yet he is convinced that Marcus is innocent. With only eight days left before the scheduled execution, Tyrone is hellbent on proving his son's innocence. He begins interviewing people and discovers some interesting facts that put the case against his son in question. Tyrone is willing to put his own safety and freedom in jeopardy to end the suffering that his son, wife, and family have endured because of his incarceration. Keeping his son alive becomes his daily mantra, but just as important is his desire to make up for his absence and put his family back together. This is a strong story for young men of all races.
