Landon Woodson's captivating singing opens this stand-alone short story from Jemisin's collection HOW LONG 'TIL BLACK FUTURE MONTH? Listeners are hooked from the start as they meet the first-person narrator, a young black man living on the street who is being called upon to act as midwife for the birth of New York City. As the smooth-talking Paulo--Sao Paulo--acts as a guide, sinister harbingers of gentrification and doom await, and a young vulnerable city sits at the brink of becoming a living, breathing place. Woodson's agile and engaging narration makes listeners wary of the ominous threats and feel all the anticipation for the battle to come. Listeners will be excited to know that Jemisin expands upon this concept in the full-length novel THE CITY WE BECAME. E.E.C.
