Description

Returning to the city that inspired his first prizewinning book, "Lost in the City," Jones has filled this new collection with people who call Washington, DC, home. Yet it s not the city s movers and shakers that most concern him but rather its ordinary citizens.

"All Aunt Hagar s Children" turns an unflinching eye to the men, women, and children caught between the old ways of the South and the temptations that await them in the city, people who in Jones masterful hands, emerge as fully human and morally complex. "
