Long on facts, the story of a poor black boy who used his talent to support his father; a complex man who always wanted to be someone or something else. The author captures history and biography and makes a compelling tale. Would have given it 5 stars, but it did get a bit rambling in places. Found it very worthwhile and haunting.
This was a good read; I like short stories, and these were very evocative. I especially liked the connected short stories. The narrators all did an excellent job. The subject matter is intriguing; relationships mostly, and poignant and funny at the same time.
