In a generational story that moves with the speed of thought from a Mississippi dirt farm to Harlem in its heyday; from a troubled Catholic orphanage to downtown artist''s lofts, "The Kid" tells of a young 21st-century man''s fight to find a way toward the future.
Annotation:
Beginning with the death of his mother, Precious, Abdul Jones endures a series of horrific abuses that echo his mother's suffering, as related in Sapphire's earlier bestseller. Sexually assaulted by peers at an orphanage, then priests in school, Abdul escapes only to trek from institution walls in Mississippi back to the Harlem streets where Precious only barely survived. Written like its precursor in a furious, verbally-eccentric dialect, THE KID yet articulates a voice as wholly separate from Abdul's mother's as the two narrators are biologically different.

Praise

"At its best, THE KID captures the grueling heartbreak of trying to love anything when the world doesn't love you enough, of trying to summon desire or affection in the absence of any healthy context for either one." - Danielle Evans 07/31/2011
