Synopsis: A young black girl watches as her aunt?s multiple suitors disrupt her family?s privacy. The same girl, now on the cusp of adulthood, shares her family?s growing fears that her father has disappeared. Acclaimed author Ann Petry penned these and the other unforgettable narratives in Miss Muriel and Other Stories more than fifty years ago, yet in them contemporary readers recognize characters who exist today and dilemmas that recur again and again : the reluctance of African Americans to seek help from the police; the rage that erupts in a black man worn down by brutality; the tyranny that the young can visit on their elders regardless of race. Originally published between 1945 and 1971, Petry?s stories capture the essence of the African American experience in the 1950s and 1960s.
Product Description: From the author of the best-selling novel The Street comes a stunning collection of stories that captures a remarkably diverse panorama of African-American experience in the 1950s and 1960s--stories of "a small town pharmacist's family, a New York nightclub drummer, a high school English teacher, a factory worker, a junk dealer, [and] a charmingly perceptive 12-year-old" (Christian Science Monitor). Set mainly along the East Coast, these realistic tales are, as one reviewer said, "a rare pleasure" (Belles Lettres) to read, as powerful today as they were when they were first published in 1971.
