The Glory Field (1994)

Tracing the legacy of the Lewis family from 1753 to 1994, WDM is at the height of his powers as he tells the stories of five characters over many generations, from Africa to South Carolina, Chicago, and New York. These are wonderfully detailed portraits that reflect time, place and sensibilities in realistic and powerful ways. My favorite so far.
