This collection showcases three previously unpublished writers of great talent. Rabie Harris writes about an old Jamaican woman, put into a Texas homecare facility by her daughter. The novella keeps astounding pace as the protagonist reports the unfolding drama of her two roommates. Gloria Yamato, in her three stories and long poem, locates those exact moments when African Americans are forced into painful racialized consciousness. DeeAnne Davis uses the streets of Chicago as a setting for four chapters from her forthcoming novel about an unlikely liaison between a young teenage girl and a gay cabbie.
