Elbow Room (James Alan McPherson)

"I think that love must be the ability to suspend one's intelligence for the sake of something. At the basis of love therefore must live imagination."

U.S.A. / 1978

James Alan McPherson was the first Black person to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. He was a short story writer and essayist. Elbow Room was the collection of short stories that won him the Pulitzer. He was considered a master of fiction writing and a skillful renderer of humanity. I'm posting this in honor of him, as he sadly passed away on July 27th- at the age of 72. The@newyorktimes wrote a nice article about his life and work. Read it here: http://nyti.ms/2avwBeo
