Komunyakaa vividly evokes his childhood in Bogalusa, Louisiana, once a center of Klan activity, and later a focus of Civil Rights efforts. He portrays a child’s dawning awareness of the natural and social order around him, rhythms of life in the community, the constant struggle for survival in the face of poverty and racism, the adolescent’s awakening sexuality, the beginnings of the poet’s awareness of his life and community as it exists in the context of history, and his emerging understanding of his own identity.

From the Publisher:

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 trim. LC 92-53863

From the Back Cover:

'This is his finest book to date -- the most ambitious, the richest in writing and psychological drama, the most emotionally and intellectually demanding. It feels as though he has raised this book out of the darkest regions of his art and life.'
