Within these pages you will find the quiet poignance of Toni Morrisons Sula, the joyous proclamations of Bernice Johnson Reagons I Remember, I Believe, the biting colloquial brilliance of Paul Beattys Big Bowls of Cereal . . . and a host of other masterful works.Filled with both poems and stories, A WAY OUT OF NO WAY is at once a deep and tender tribute to the delicacy of adolescence and a first-rate study of African-American literature.ERNEST J.
