Oh the stories are so rich! The author has immense empathy for all his characters, even the ones who do awful things. The stories often have multiple threads woven into a tapestry that immerse the reader as if in a novel. Jones’s unique voice weaves the world of Black people living in Washington, D.C. into a narrative that feels as real as if you were walking among the characters, yourself (in my case a White southern man in his 50’s) one or two haunted generations away from a former life left behind in the Jim Crow South. The stories generally take place in the 1950’s to 1980’s, but have a timeless, rooted quality.
These stories and Jones’s fantastic novel The Known World comprise his whole published oeuvre. I consider him among my very favorite authors, though his works be few. Treat your heart to all his books.
Short stories are so amazing and Mr. Jones tells the absolute best. There is one question however in one he writes about picking cotton and going up and down the rows with a cup of water getting bugs, WHAT? I have picked many a sack of cotton and never was water involved we would have been accused of trying to add weight to the cotton not to mention ruin with mildew. Still and all great to the nth degree. Write more please.
