**STARRED REVIEW** 
"Bryant’s poetic descriptions effectively chronicle Wilson’s artistic journey. . . This empathetic and informative study of August Wilson’s early years explores the complexities of the black experience in America. A book that will resonate not only with bookworms and fans of the playwright but with black children wishing to see themselves reflected in the world around them."
