Description

The Portable Promised Land: Stories

Toure

Little, Brown and Company

June 27, 2009

This inspired collection of stories is cause for celebration. With stunning language and dazzling characters, Toure introduces Soul City a wholly imagined utopia where magic happens and black is beautiful. In a broad range of characterization and styles, The Portable Promised Land is filled with lighthearted humor and heavyhearted issues. Toure challenges form and what's considered politically correct in stories like "The Sad, Sweet Story of Sugar Lips Shinehot" and "Afrolexicolgy Today's Bi-Annual List of the Top 50 Words in African America." The Portable Promised Land marks the entrance of a new and wildly compelling voice to fiction.
