Contemporary urban America comes alive in this eclectic compilation of short and flash fiction with an inner-city aesthetic filtered through the brevity of hip-hop culture. A wide variety of strong voices and unforgettable characters are united by the humorous and unusual predicaments in which they find themselves, and many of the stories tackle contemporary psychological and sociological issues. Stories like "Simple," "The Faucet," and "Getting to Know Him" demonstrate a wonderful ear for the lilt of the spoken language while portraying everyday drama. Other engaging tales like "Men at Work," "Chicken," and "Cleaving to the Man" prove how thought-provoking entertainment can be. These quick slices of life and easily consumable vignettes aim for a sophistication not common in most urban fiction.
