In powerful prose that has been compared to that of his writing mentor, Raymond Carver, Holman tellingly paints a portrait of the lives of middle-class African Americans today. Grim, who worked as a race-car driver and a show-business cowboy before returning home to run a car restoration business, and Rita, a math teacher, are enriched by their friends, their family, and the small beautiful moments of everyday life. In penetrating language Holman exposes the uniqueness of each persons soul that always lies just beneath a quotidian surface.
