About this title

Synopsis:

In the third novel by the author of Blacker Than a Thousand Midnights, the Thompson clan tries to deal with the chaos after their family patriarch finds the burning bodies of two white women on his property and is then accidentally gunned down by police. Tour.

Review:

Susan Straight's third novel begins with remembered violence, as 76-year-old Hosea Thompson awakes from a dream of the Oklahoma riots in which whites destroyed black Tulsa, and his father was killed. But now, in the present, violence still stalks Hosea. Two white women are burned in a car on his property in Rio Seco, Calif., and the police accuse Hosea and his sons. Straight tells the story of the Thompson family's fight to prove their innocence and hold onto their land in taut, compelling prose that is absolutely faithful to the black experience.
