The bulk of the novel is an exploration of the Wideman family through oral folklore. The narrators change, usually the person in question narrates their own story, covering a long timeline and many aspects of the family. We are first introduced to Orion, a slave, who is decapitated for exposing himself to the mistress of the house.

John This is another installment of the Homewood Series and worth reading. John French is front and center in this tale. But we are also introduced to Reba Love Jackson, a legend on the gospel circuit. Even covering Tommy on the run after the robbery gone bad. This is a very impressive collage of an African-American family.

Using the perspective of different relatives to tell the story of births, deaths and tragedies, leads to a thorough picture of life in Homewood throughout the decades. There is a dignity in poverty portrayed is this novel. I did not understand all ofbthe connections but for some reason that was nh favorite part cause it was nice to read something that was so unique I could not predict the characters or the themes but I had to think bout them and reread sections tip they made sense.

I really loved the book, but be prepared for language and content. I read it for my postmodern American literature class, and frankly, did not understand some of it. As he explores the idea of forging ties to the lost, African American past, Wideman creates an incredible microcosm, Homewood. I highly recommend this book, as well as the documentary "Jack Johnson: Unforgivable Blackness. All the stories seem to be dealing with how to keep faith in God and goodness in the face of a world where everything is confusing and finding a purpose is never fully possible.

Very spiritually enlightening. Loved it. Sep 09, Scott rated it liked it Recommends it for: students of african-american literature Recommended to Scott by: Dr. Gloria Cronin Difficult to read, and discouraging except for the doggedly-determined.
