Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Adenrele Ojo, JD Jackson

Fiction • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

With ease, empathy, and knowing assurance, veteran narrators Adenrele Ojo and JD Jackson become the recurring characters in this dazzling collection of 13 stories. The short works examine the hopes and fears of the rising Black middle class located in a "sliver of Southern suburbia" in the 1990s/2000s. Fathers wanting better lives for their sons. Prodigal brothers returning from prison. A lonely child inventing family tales. These are voices of warmth, family, and humor, but listeners will still hear suspicions about an often divisive America. Ojo and Jackson do all they can to find the truth in these characters and support the distinctive visions and authentic Southern tones of Hubbard's universe. It's the sound of modern American literature of the highest order. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
