Sent for You Yesterday

Author: John Edgar Wideman
Publisher: Mariner Books

Reimagining the black neighborhood of his youth—Homewood, Pittsburgh—Wideman creates a dazzling and evocative milieu. From the wild and uninhibited 1920s to the narcotized 1970s, “he establishes aamythological and symbolic link between character and landscape, language and plot, that in the hands of a less visionary writer might be little more than stale sociology” (New York Times Book Review).
