Inhaltsangabe: A beautiful collection of short stories that explores blacks and whites today, Elbow Room is alive with warmth and humor. Bold and very real, these twelve stories examine a world we all know but find difficult to define.
Whether a story dashes the bravado of young street toughs or pierces through the self-deception of a failed preacher, challenges the audacity of a killer or explodes the jealousy of two lovers, James Alan McPherson has created an array of haunting images and memorable characters in an unsurpassed collection of honest, masterful fiction.
Rezension: McPherson's second collection of short stories won the Pulitzer Prize, an honor it richly deserved for his fine writing and unique perspective. The range here is astounding: "The Story of a Dead Man," is reminiscent of "bad-man" folk songs like "Railroad Bill" or "Stagolee"; "The Faithful" shows the clash of generations in the story of a stubborn barber; while the title story depicts McPherson's uncompromising, yet optimistic, vision for an integrated America.
