A vivid novel about street life and how the struggle to conquer poverty can reveal the indomitable will of the human spirit.
A vivid tale of survival, friendship, tragedy, and ultimate redemption on the streets
Mugwump, Whiteboy Paul, Truitt, and Willmon Angel are tragic outcasts plunged into a world of shifting morality, sexual exploration, and the stinging reality of racism. An illicit relationship with a high school English teacher, a tragic altercation with the police, and a youthful indiscretion force them each to confront hard truths that alter their lives forever. When the violent murder of a friend tears their tight clique apart, the friends do not see each other for years. Now, reunited and facing the consequences of their actions long ago, they hatch a plan to exact revenge on the murderer. Bold literary voice Nane Quartay captures thoughtful social commentary in a fast-paced narrative that reveals how the bonds of friendship can empower people to overcome all obstacles.
