A story of a man brought to reckon with his buried past. Reverend Martin comes face to face with the sins of his youth in the person of Robert X, a young, unkempt stranger who arrives in town for a mysterious " meeting" with the Reverend.

"It is the force of Mr. Gaines's character and intelligence, operating through [his] deceptively quiet style, that makes his fictioni compelling. . . . The dialogue is spare, but unerring, and humor will keep slipping in subtly despite the tragedies behind these lives." --Larry McMurty, The New York Times Book Review

"He write's eloquently of the frustrated love between fathers and sons. . . . His best writing is marked by what Ralph Ellison, describing the blues, call 'near-tragic, near-comic lyricism.'" --Margo Jefferson, Newsweek

"The dialogue is mesmerizing. . . . The characterizations come right off the page. . . . No one writes about mainstream, ordinary black life as well as he does." --Ishmael Reed "It would make a gripping play with its tight plot and strong scenes of confrontation, its Ibsenite central character." --The Washington Post
