This is a terrific read! The book is about a young black jazz musician who runs into a hero from his childhood, a famous black baseball player from the old Negro Leagues, who is completely changed from the hero the young musician remembers, and how these two men are caught up in the racial violence and terror of the early days of the Civil Rights Movement in the South. But it really makes you stop and wonder what heroism really means in these circumstances. The writing is beautiful, even poetic -- but Wilson has a good ear and the dialog has the freshness, grit and humor of real speech. The characters are sharply drawn. The author makes you walk in their shoes. This is a story of hope, determination and resourcefulness in overcoming huge challenges. I couldn't put it down. It has a great cover, too! I'm looking forward to Mr. Wilson's next book. Highly recommended!
