    I read this when I was staying with my aunt in a very small town in Alabama (Anniston). She was recovering from a serious illness, and needed some help. It is a book that I had very little trouble reading from cover to cover. All the stories were well-written and helped to while away the time in a very small town. I have to say that I found most of them on the depressing side (hence the four and 1/2 instead of five stars). I would like to see more books about the African American experience that I read this when I was staying with my aunt in a very small town in Alabama (Anniston).

I have to say that I found most of them on the depressing side (hence the four and 1/2 instead of five stars). I would like to see more books about the African American experience that are on the positive end. Yes, history has not been kind to us overall, but fiction should be about celebration, as well as mourning and reflecting on the trials of life. Rating 4.5/5.0 stars

    Great collection of authors. I purchased this book in the early 90s. As a recent college grad, it allowed me to review vast amount of authors and genres. I made a favorite list of authors and read their other books. Great tool, regret it giving away.

    A great anthology of contemporary fiction by AA authors. McMillan did a great job of editing this book. Also features excerpts of novels by Gloria Naylor etc.

    I remember losing or having this book stolen when I was in college. (I made the mistake of not carrying it in my backpack.) Now I get a chance to re-read the book, thanks to Recycled Reads.

    Very good short stories. I checked the book out from the library. 698 pages I believe. The stories are also very well told and they capture culture very well!
