The Women of Brewster Place launched Gloria Naylor and was filmed for television. Now the author returns to the housing project on Brewster with a similar series of first-person narratives of its male inhabitants. Joe Morton--an excellent, if colorless, actor--impersonates these men, while the author herself bridges each section as the spirit of the place. Both do a nice job--especially Morton, who reins in the book's melodrama and sentimentality. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
