About the Author:

Born and raised in Chicago, Leon Forrest (1937-1997) taught English and African-American Studies at Northwestern University. He is the author of a collection of essays entitled "The Furious Voice for Freedom," as well as numerous novels, including T"wo Wings to Veil My Face," winner of four literary awards, "Divine Days," and "Meteor in the Madhouse."

From the Inside Flap:

Employing the remarkable verbal intensity for which he is known, Leon Forrest tells the story of young Nathaniel Witherspoon and his friends-all of whom are orphans and most of whom are descendents of a Mississippi slave owner-in this haunting novel. With the help of a local preacher, the children discover their roots as well as what it means to experience human tragedy, injustice, and spirituality.
