Publisher's Summary

Trinidad-born Justin Peters is a Harvard-educated literature professor, whose focus on the works of "Dead White Men" receives little professional respect at the public Brooklyn college where he teaches. But whatever troubles he might have at work are eclipsed when he realizes his wife, Sally, with whom he shares a four-year-old daughter, is no longer certain about their life together.
Once a poet, now a teacher and nearly 40, Harlem-born Sally wants something more. If Sally and Justin's union is to survive, both must face the crippling echoes of their own pasts before those memories forever cloud and alter their future.


What the Critics Say

"Nunez's latest (after Discretion) is a perceptive and moving tale of an African-American middle-class marriage struggling to right itself amid tremors of self-discovery." (Publishers Weekly)
"Wise and resonant, it will strike a chord with readers interested in the interplay of race, class, and gender within relationships." (Library Journal)
