This amazing book of short stories comes with high praise from several writers whose work I admire, including Daniel Woodrell, George Pelecanos and Charles Johnson. Nicholson's stories all take place in Washington, D.C. in the neighborhoods of working class blacks. In prose that is deceptively simple Nicholson brings his characters to vivid life. He reminds me of Ralph Ellison. He is that good.
