Winner of the 1993 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Fiction
Bebe Moore Campbell has been praised by Maya Angelou as "a writer who fearlessly unveils the pain of loss and the ecstasy of love." In Your Blues Ain't Like Mine a 1950's Mississippi town is torn apart when a racist beating turns into cold-blooded murder, and the repercussions are felt in the lives of both whites and black for decades to come.
"Intriguing...A thoughtful, intelligent...The novel traces the years from the '50s to the late '80s, from Eisenhower to George Bush.... She writes with simple eloquence about small-town life in the South, right after the start of the great social upheaval of the Civil Rights Movement.... Campbell has a strong, creative voice."--The Washington Post Book World
