"Its stunning monologues are gorgeous, funny and savage." -LA Times
"The most comic of the Wilson cycle so far." -The Christian Science MonitorIt is 1969, and in the aftermath of the riots, Dr. King’s assassination, and the rise of the black power movement, a young man named Stirling comes to Memphis Lee’s diner where customers have gathered for decades to share their struggles, faith, and hopes. But this diner has been slated for demolition in the city’s new redevelopment plan, and what unfolds is Wilson’s most compassionate and humorous work about lives in transition, evolving social awareness, and spirits rising.
