This book is an ethnographic study, and tries to honestly present the stories of the lives of three brothers and their families in Springfield, MA. It is a powerful work.
It was especially interesting to me because it is about life in our church’s city. I have thought about having a book study through the congregation on it, but the language is a little harsh at times. I still may though, because it is an important work.
