Synopsis: A Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of eloquently told stories about black Americans--ministers, professors, convicts, businesswomen--all struggling to protect their individuality and integrity from the demands imposed by others.

Review: McPherson's second collection of short stories won the Pulitzer Prize, an honor it richly deserved for his fine writing and unique perspective. The range here is astounding: "The Story of a Dead Man," is reminiscent of "bad-man" folk songs like "Railroad Bill" or "Stagolee"; "The Faithful" shows the clash of generations in the story of a stubborn barber; while the title story depicts McPherson's uncompromising, yet optimistic, vision for an integrated America.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
