Brewster Place is a blind alley feeding into a dead end. Seven women have made their way there, each with her own story, her own goals and dreams.
Gloria Naylor truly constructed a world full of women society makes invisible (often by choice). Black women who are subject to so many systems of racism and patriarchy, but still find a way to survive and live. Tonya Pinkins is an unsung talent in her ability to create a persona of each character, and truly weave her voice work in with the worlds of Naylor. This was awesomely sad, but I'm so glad I got to listen to these stories. It couldn't have been done better.
