The much-anticipated first novel, Among Others, from Lois Griffith, a director of New York City's noted Nuyorican Poets Cafe, has finally arrived. Lean, triumphant, and knowing, the novel offers a welcome break from the current wave of "girlfriend" fiction, with a probing examination of the racial strife of the late 1960s as seen through the eyes of Griffith's alter ego, Della. She acts as our wise Everywoman searching for love and purpose in New York City amid the turmoil of post-Camelot America.
