book.jpgAll Aunt Hagar's Children (Amistad)
Edward P. Jones' magnificent new book of stories takes up characters from his earlier collection, Lost in the City. Minor, background characters become central; children unlearn the lessons of their parents; time somersaults; and legends become truth. Jones explains that he never expected to meet these characters again, yet, here he is with a whole new book filled with them, bringing greater depths to his capacious imagination.
