Rate this:
This inspired collection of stories is cause for celebration. With stunning language and dazzling characters, Toure introduces Soul City -- a wholly imagined utopia where magic happens and black is beautiful. In a broad range of characterization and styles, "The Portable Promised Land" is filled with lighthearted humor and heavyhearted issues. Toure challenges form and what's considered politically correct in stories like "The Sad, Sweet Story of Sugar Lips Shinehot" and "Afrolexicolgy: Today's Bi-Annual List of the Top 50 Words in African America."

"The Portable Promised Land" marks the entrance of a new and wildly compelling voice to fiction.
