Octavo, black cloth & burgundy boards (hardcover), gilt letters, uncut, 360 pp. Fine (As New), in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. Wil Haygood's memoir of his home town of Columbus, Ohio, is an up-lifting yet unsparing celebration of the ties that bind all loving American families. The lives of the Haygoods -- grandmother a hotel cook, mother a nightlife-loving waitress, father mostly absent, one brother a legendary pimp, the other a star-crossed dreamer, sisters whose fates included very little disposable income -- were all interwined with that of Mount Vernon Avenue, an eclectic, seductive street of shops, juke joints, and speak-easies at the epicenter of Columbus's black community...
