About this title

Synopsis:

An acclaimed author turns his attention once again to the subject of race, focusing on the continuing struggle for racial equality in America and using a handful of black and white residents in Maryland as the backdrop for his provocative exploration. 25,000 first printing.

Review:

Rolling Stone contributor Howard Kohn applies a novelistic touch to his depiction of the lives of several black and white residents of Prince Georges County, Maryland, a stable, middle-class, predominately African American enclave just outside Washington, D.C. Kohn's prose, although rooted in a noble effort, tends toward the melodramatic, especially in his portrayals of one couple's interracial romance and a black lawyer's politically incorrect defense of the daughter of a white policeman who killed her African American boyfriend. --Eugene Holley, Jr.
