The Times They Used to Be

Title: The Times They Used to Be
Author: Lucille Clifton
Call Number: PS3553.L45 T56 1974
Location: 3rd Floor Muth
Rating: Recommended
Book Review: Painfully poor language, but they are trying to set a scene of life for black Americans in the mid twentieth century. Random plots make it seem like snapshots of the time. Freaky sub-plot about a ghost-nun who a crazy uncle keeps trying to give a ride to only to find she has disappeared. A wee bit Twilight-zony.
