Author Info
Gloria Naylor
Gloria Naylor's father was a transit worker and her mother a telephone operator. She received a B.A. at Brooklyn College, and went on to attend graduate school at Yale University. From 1968 to 1975, she was a missionary for Jehovah's Witnesses in New York, North Carolina and Florida; from 1975 to 1981 she was a telephone operator for hostels. But she decided to become a writer because, as she says, "I felt that my presence as a black woman and my perspective as a woman in general had been under-represented in American literature."
From the Publisher
Annotation Using Dante's INERNO as a basis for constructing her plot, Naylor tells the story of Willie Mason, a poet, and his journey through Linden Hills, a town where he and fellow poet Lester Tilson go to find work during the holidays. Linden Hills is, essentially, run by Luther Nedeed, a fifth-generation mortician who admires traditional white affluence and has sacrificed his soul and his identity to achieve it.
First Line There had been a dispute for years over the exact location of Linden Hills.
