Crumbs From the Table of Joy
Crumbs from the Table of Joy is described by NY Times critic Ben Brantley as " African-American variation on A Tree Grows in Brooklyn... a mixture of comedy and poignancy."  Narrated by 17-year-old Ernestine Crump, whose mother has recently died, the story follows her family's move from Florida to New York City in 1950. Her father's new-found devotion to mail-order minister Father Divine, her aunt's socialist political views, and a most unexpected Step-Mother push Ernestine into escapist movie fantasies. Ultimately she decides to face reality and embarks on her own journey to college and beyond.

Sometimes a crumb falls from the table of joy,

Sometimes a bone is flung.

To some people love is given,

To others only heaven.    

--Langston Hughes, "Luck"
