Straight, Blacker Than A Thousand Midnights.

Straight, Susan. Blacker Than A Thousand Midnights. Advance Reader's Edition. New York, Hyperion, 1994. 15.5 x 23.5cm. 388 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition, as new.

Darnell Tucker has more to think about than the average twenty-year-old. A resident of impoverished Rio Seco, California, he works part time as the lone black member of the fire department and will soon be a father. Though he loves his job, cutbacks to the state budget force him to search for new work, and the low-paying positions he finds rival firefighting in their peril. On two of the jobs, he’s mistaken for a criminal by the police; coming home from another, he’s shot at by a gang. His path blocked by economics, institutionalized racism, and the dangers of the place where he lives, how can he provide for his daughter, who has changed his life? Blacker Than a Thousand Midnights is a stark and thoroughly convincing portrait of life on the margins. [From jacket notes]
