Description

Winner of the National Book Award

"A novel in the honorable tradition of Billy Budd and Moby Dick...heroic in proportion... fiction that hooks into the mind." -- The New York Times Book Review

"Long after we'd stopped believing in the great American novel, along comes a spellbinding adventure story that may be just that." -- Chicago Tribune

"It's a joy to read fiction in which there is a cultivated vision at work...the greatest victory of Dreamer is the light it shines on the life of Martin Luther King Jr."

--Dennis McFarland, The New York Times Book Review

"In their remarkable simplicity these stories reach into...the African American experience with surprising freshness and the fluency of years of gathered wisdom. This book is a deeply satisfying reading adventure." -- Black Issues Book Review.
