Bigotry is an ugly and evil thing. What is even more insidious is when you start to hate the people of your own race.
Kathy wanted to be white. She learned to talk white and walk white and even had herself a handsome white husband. The only thing wrong with her life was that she had been born black.
While on a shopping trip in New England, Kathy comes across an old curio shop, which sells her a "special" mirror. With this mirror she can see what she wishes to see.
With sleight of hand, the subtle bending of light, and the realization of truth, Kathy and her husband, Robert, learn the frightful lesson of...the mirror.
This has an interesting take on racism, and some twists and turns. Even when I don't like Kirch, I like Kirch. Every now and than I run into a writer, who seems to think in similar ways that I do, someone I can relate to. This is my third Kirch book or short and my favorite so far. Maybe Kirch is already a successful writer, if not he is going to be. The guy is talented and has an active imagination.
Steve White is an exceptionally good narrator.
