Dreamer

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

From the National Book Award-winning author of "Middle Passage," a fearless fictional portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his pivotal moment in American history.
Set against the tensions of Civil Rights era America, "Dreamer" is a remarkable fictional excursion into the last two years of Martin Luther King Jr.'s life, when the political and personal pressures on this country's most preeminent moral leader were the greatest. While in Chicago for his first northern campaign against poverty and inequality, King encounters Chaym Smith, whose startling physical resemblance to King wins him the job of official stand-in. Matthew Bishop, a civil rights worker and loyal follower of King, is given the task of training the smart and deeply cynical Smith for the job. In doing so, Bishop must face the issue of what makes one man great while another man can only stand in for greatness. Provocative, heartfelt, and masterfully rendered, Charles Johnson confirms yet again that he is one of the great treasures of modern American literature.
Dr. Charles Johnson is a novelist, screenwriter, essayist, professional cartoonist and the Pollock Professor of English at the University of Washington. He is the author of more than sixteen books, including the PEN/Faulkner nominated story collection "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and the novel "Middle Passage," for which he won the National Book Award.
