Stories that explore the body’s music, the spirit’s music, and what moves a soul forward. Stories that travel from haunted West African and Middle Eastern forests to the mysterious back roads in the Mississippi Delta, from the ancestral realms of the afterlife to the alien sounds beyond. And throughout the journey, NINE BAR BLUES heralds the arrival of a unique writer whose voice carries the hope and the past-future-present of a people. Pre-Order NINE BAR BLUES by Sheree Renée Thomas now and be the first to read this important, groundbreaking collection of contemporary fiction.
