Reading it, I'd laugh and reflect on when my mom used to invite her friends home. It would be one or two in the morning, and they would bring back chicken and waffles and barbecue. They'd be dancing and laughing and playing cards. The kids would be in the bedroom, and they would wake us up to share their breakfast with them. The book touches on so much—where my great-great-grandmothers have been, where my mom was, where I'm at right now. It's wonderful.
