About this title


Awed, bedevilled, and bemused, all Cooper's characters are borne up by the sheer power of life itself in these wise and exhilarating stories from Cooper's newest book.

From the Publisher:

Critical Praise for J. California Cooper:

"Cooper's work reminds us of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston." -Alice Walker

"Cooper knows how to 'talk' her stories to us, as though each of them is told by a kindly and concerned friend. The sound of them is lovely, memorable, haunting." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Gutsy and familiar...Cooper's power comes from sticking to her instinct, which is to tell a story, plain and simple." --The Washington Post

"Ms. Cooper is as down-home as Zora Neale Hurston, thank you, and blooming into as skilled a storyteller. Cooper's characters are the folk heroes of black culture.... Tales of triumph that give you reason to keep reading." --Essence

"These stories are jazzy, clubby, folksy, small towny, populist, perky, and if you don't like them, you must be in an absolutely unshakeable bad mood...." --Carolyn See, Los Angeles Times

"Both men and women are treated with such bemused love that these tales of passions gone astray are transformed into celebrations of life." --MS.
