Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0807009369, Hardcover)

The nearly 30 essays collected here explore aspects of what it is to be a black man in America that all too often don't appear on television or in the newspapers. Writers as well-known as John Edgar Wideman and Walter Mosley (as well as emerging writers whose names we'll soon know better) consider the experience of being a son or being a father, meditate on violence and its effects, and share their losses, joys and triumphs.
