A young girl suffers her first betrayal. A widow flirts with an elderly blind man against the wishes of her grown-up children.

"Ms. Bambara grabs you by the throat...she dazzles, she charms." -- Chicago Daily News
"Among the best portraits of black life to have appeared in some time." -- Saturday Review
"Bambara presents situations that build like improvisations on a melody....As drawn with spirit and subtlety. [Her characters] are-even in their defeats-a pleasure to watch."

FROM THE PUBLISHER - No writer anywhere understands controls, and expresses better than Toni Cade Bambara the Black Style - a style at once ineffable and immediately recognizable. Survivalist, graceful, hip, human, ironic, generous, tortured - such terms only approximate its essence. In these fifteen superb stories, her touch is so sure, her ear so keen, we are turned up, on, and inside out as we move from uptown New York to small-town North Carolina, from sassy black girls to cunning old men, from basements to F.A.O. Schwartz. Sharing the world of what she calls her ‘straight-up fiction’ is a stunning experience. ‘She has captured it all, how we really talk, how we really are; and done it with both love and respect. I laughed until I cried, then laughed again. I loved it! She must love us very much.’ - Lucille Clifton. ‘You’d hardly call them ‘stories.’ These are shavins off our Black experience - like chocolate. Bittersweet, that is.’ - Mari Evans.
