Nigger HeavenBook - 2000
"Here upper-class elites discuss art in well-appointed drawing rooms; rowdy and lascivious drunks spend long nights in jazz clubs and speakeasies; and politically conscious young intellectuals drink coffee and debate "the race problem" in walkup apartments. At the center of the story, two young people -- a quiet, serious librarian and a volatile aspiring writer -- struggle to love each other as their dreams are slowly suffocated by racism."--Jacket.
