By Gwendoline Y. Fortune
Corporate Intrigue, family and friendship are unexpected coordinates for a single
mother, her male subordinate, their children and Aunt Pet, with intuitive power.
This story is a skilled weaving of the past, with present environmental concerns
in our multi-cultured world. Family Lines follows the highly endorsed first
novel, Growing Up Nigger Rich, 2002. "...worthy of our best, most serious attention,"
wrote George Garrett. "...important
southern story, illuminating, memorable, necessary," said Lee Smith.
