Archie's Psalm

ByChristopher D. Burns

Archie's Psalm is a glimpse into the world of a latchkey kid who is encountering situations that force him to learn about the changing world around him. A coming of age story with a carefully crafted narrative and subplot, Archie's Psalm shows the transitioning world of a neighborhood in Memphis, TN ten years after Dr. King's death. Through the setting, vivid character descriptions and moving storytelling a hot and humid southern neighborhood comes to life. Through the use of dialect and song the shifting tone and sound of the south reminds the reader of Zora Neale Hurstons' novels. A work of literature that is artistic, powerful and important. A book that could become as relevant as Ann Petry's The Street.
