Read full description of the books:
I am astounded that Brown wrote this book at age 34. His understanding of the human condition has the depth of a writer who has lived four lifetimes. Decorations in a Ruined Cemetery is also the most aware story about the long and torturous relationship between blacks and whites in the South, during the late 1950's, that I've come across in a long time---maybe ever. If only each of us could understand the characters Brown gives us, then perhaps we would have a clue where to start to repair our culture. If only. Because,as Brown shows us, today is made from yesterdays. Read this book. It will stay with you long after you savor the last paragraph of hope and longing.
