Audio Book Summary

In the winter of 1926, when everybody everywhere sees nothing but good things ahead, Joe Trace, middle-aged door-to-door salesman of Cleopatra beauty products, shoots his teenage lover to death. At the funeral, Joe’s wife, Violet, attacks the girl’s corpse. This passionate, profound story of love and obsession brings us back and forth in time, as a narrative is assembled from the emotions, hopes, fears, and deep realities of black urban life.

    This is a very VERY abridged version and you miss like half of the story.

    I felt like I was a part of the characters lives! Everything felt so real and the added snips of jazz and Toni's voice, made the whole experience feel wonderful. I did not want it to end.
