    Book Description:
    A unanimous chorus of critical acclaim greeted this powerful novel last year?one of the most significant works of African-American fiction since Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man. This huge oratorio of a novel unfolds over seven days in the life of Joubert Jones, an aspiring playwright making ends meet tending bar at his Aunt Eloise’s Night Lounge. A Rabelaisian cast of characters and a Shakespearean range of voices crowd the pages of this book, an infinitely rich and suggestive tapestry of Black-American life and identity.
