Innan själva historien börjar får vi veta lite om författaren James E. Cherry. Bla annat står det: [Författaren] "experienced a spiritual,mental and cultural awakening in his mid-twenties...", och detta är vad det hela handlar om, och som vanligt så blir allt endimentionellt när någon ser livets skeenden genom religiösa glasögon. Ingen som inte tror på Gud (och att USA är världens bästa samhälle) mår bra, och alla goda är jättegoda och alla onda är bara hemska rakt igenom.

Och om man ångrar sig och knäböjer inför Gud blir alla glada (utom förnekarna försås). ( )

A book is like a man - clever and dull, brave and cowardly, beautiful and ugly. For every Flowery thiought there will be a page like a wet and mangy mongrel and for every looping flight a tap on the wing and a reminder that wax cannot hold the feathers firm too near the sun. - John Steinbeck

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Detective and mystery stories. The festering racial tensions in a Tennessee backwater town called Forrest come to the boil after a black grandmother is raped and shot by a gang of white teenagers. Only one man has the capacity to keep a lid on the mounting violence and that's the town's senior black cop, Walter Robinson. Only trouble is Walter's own life isn't in great shape: his constant infidelities are wrecking his marriage, and his nephew Cebo is the street druglord who's leading the charge to take revenge on the whites. This is a two-fisted portrayal of the New South as it really is - riven by poverty, drugs and racism, but still struggling towards a better future. In A Shadow of Light, James E. Cherry reports back from America's internal frontline.… (more)
