KIRKUS REVIEW

In the rich, colloquial idiom and rhythm of his people one of the foremost Negro poets contributes some more lyric poetry. Blues, ballads and mammy songs, with much of the spiritual quality, melody and color and melancholy; songs of love or lack of love, of loneliness, from Harlem to Texas. Predictable market.
