Description
Set in the civil rights era, A House Divided explores the private and public lives of two men, united in philosophy and friendship but divided by race, class and the circumstances of their rearing and how their personal choices affect their public lives. The novel is at once a murder mystery and a reflection on a turbulent time in American history.
