    All the stories in this book were very interesting and thought provoking My favorite story I read from this book was Sonny s Blues James Baldwin did an excellent job of describing the hardships that Sonny experienced in Urban Harlem I am very grateful that Charles H Bohner wrote this book.

    Thick book with a massive collection of short stories Enjoyed reading the stories, which do not reflect Bohner s writing skills since he didn t really do anything other than put other people s works in there Not much to say except that people who enjoy reading short fiction will definitely like looking through this book.
