Publisher's Summary

The toast of Europe, Josephine Evans had spent 30 years abroad establishing her reputation as one of the finest actresses of her generation. In Amsterdam, she redefined who and what an African American diva could be, and her legions of loyal fans loved her for it. But when a war she didn't even understand suddenly makes her the target of angry anti-American protests, Josephine is forced to return to America to see if she can find a new definition of home.

Camping out with her granddaughter in Atlanta's West End, Josephine tries to reclaim her old life even as she scrambles to shape her new one. An unexpected reunion with an old friend, Abbie Allen Browning, soon offers her a chance to set things right. Rallying with Abbie against an unscrupulous land developer who threatens to tear the community apart, Josephine finds herself playing the most important role of her life, as she shows her neighbors what courage really is and learns the real meaning of coming home.

What the Critics Say

"An irresistible story filled with fun, sexy, interesting characters....[Cleage is] at the top of her form." (Essence)
"Exciting, fast-moving....reads like an African American, Southern version of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City....The stories intersect, spawning misunderstandings, deceptions, betrayals, broken promises and double crosses. It's all great fun." (The Washington Post)

    "as good as it gets"

    Pearl Cleage is one of my favorite authors. It was hard to imagine any voice other than her own bringing life to her prose, but Robin Miles sealed the deal and then some! Each character comes alive through her exquisite diction, innovative accents and instinctive intonation. I thoroughly enjoyed this production.

    "Pearl Cleage and Robin Miles--What a great mix!"

    Pearl Cleage, one of my favorite authors, has done it again with "Seen it All, Done the Rest." Her characters are real, three-dimensional, and believable, and Robin Miles' narration is engaging, varied, and best of all, the characters are easily distinguishable. The mix between these two women's amazing talents makes you care about the author's characters, and want to hear more of their voices personified by the narrator.

    "Good Read"

    Part of a series of books about characters set in modern day Atlanta. If you liked Baby Brother's Blues, you'll enjoy this book by Pearl Cleage.
