Description

Back in print after more than five years, this is the extraordinary first short story collection by the author of Family.




Praise For A Piece of Mine

"In its strong folk flavor, Cooper's work reminds us of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston...It is a delight to read."
--Alice Walker

"The label 'short' story is a woefully inadequate description of these intensely, explicitly moral tales.  'Parable' is more appropriate.  Cooper's stories are rich in wisdom and insight."
--Belles Lettres

"J. California Cooper is indeed an extraordinary writer...She has the rare quality of a natural storyteller, and her work must carry the highest recommendation.  Definitely a book that's worth reading."
--African Concord (Zimbabwe)
