Description

Interweaving the real and the surreal, Charles Johnson spins eight extra-ordinary tales of transformations and metamorphoses. An Illinois farmer teaches a young slave everything he knows - with fatal consequences. A young boy growing to manhood as a country sorcerer's apprentice learns the difference between power and strength. From the first piece to the last, these stories capture very real human experiences in a new and starting light.

Praise

"Voodoo Calvino...If you're wondering what happened to all the great black writers in this country, I think Johnson is one of the best we've got, black or white" - San Francisco Examiner.
