Back in print after more than five years, this is the extraordinary first short story collection by the author of "Family."

The extraordinary debut short story collection from the award-winning author of Family and Life is Short But Wide.

In its strong folk flavor, Cooper's work reminds us of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston ... It is a delight to read. --Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling author

The label 'short' story is a woefully inadequate description of these intensely, explicitly moral tales. 'Parable' is more appropriate. Cooper's stories are rich in wisdom and insight. -- Belles Lettres


J. California Cooper was honored as Black Playwright of the Year, and has received the American Book Award, the James Baldwin Writing Award, and the Literary Lion Award from the American Library Association. She lives in California.
