Had me plastered to the page. It'd been awhile since I felt such palpable disappointment at saying goodbye to a cast of characters, but the personalities within this book and the journeys they're each bidden to take really got me in the gut. Heavily American novel about the nature of choice, the inevitability of the past, and the devastating tenacity of the spirit. Hilarious and sad!

Brilliant!  Few times have I felt as vindicated as I did while imagining Clark's heroine, Maryse, lop off the heads of Ku Klux monsters.  A thoughtful and well-paced read that punches white supremacy directly in the face, with style and grace.  I will not pretend that I did not cry!

"At the time, it was not so near the end and when my mother woke we found the car and left Portland, my mother saying my name.  "Lizzie", she said.  "Lizzie."  I felt as though I must be with her somewhere and that she knew that too, but not in that old blue convertible traveling home in the dark, the soft, stained roof ballooning up as I knew it looked like it was from outside.  I got out of it, but it took me years."

Heatherton: "In the conclusion of Black Marxism, you note that Black radicalism remained a currency of resistance and revolt for revolutionaries like Angela Y. Davis.  In the present moment, how do visions of liberation articulated by the Black Radical Tradition help us in developing a philosophy of praxis?"

 Cedric Robinson: "Part of it is, in effect, developing a method of understanding the word around you.  Our communities are marvelous phenomena.  In a sense, the totalitites that we have experienced historically have each, in the moment, seemed unassailable.  At each crisis we shouldn't have survived, but we have.  The current ordering of the world is so fragile.  That is the lesson: in each historical moment, justice, social justice, and moral authority are questioned.  They seem to be on their last legs, but that has never proven to be the case.  That's one of the lasting lessons of Black Marxism.""

"There the suede noises

  The sounds of silk and shame

  Are faith and form.

  The small town passes,

      The years chime.

 

  But water-dark and down

     The sounding stair

     The ideas are

     Lit by no door

  No window pane

  Where hearings drown.

 

  The hand behind the love

      The hat behind the grace

  Behave like trees and move

      And have three ways

      And quench all noise.

 

  What the rain preaches

       What the stars say

       Vanish in the gold eye

       The wet day

  Like God among the churches.

from Bartimeus
