In 1949, jazz pianist Sonny-Rhett Payne left New York for Paris, to be free from racism and his family’s disapproval. Now Sonny’s grandson has come to New York for a memorial concert. There, the 8-year-old begins to understand the forces that drove Sonny into exile. Paule Marshall is an award-winning author and distinguished professor of creative writing at New York University.
