    1. Bradley, David. SOUTH STREET. (1975). ****. This was a lucky, random find at a library sale. I hadn’t heard of the novel or the author before and took a chance. South Street is a street in South Philadelphia that runs from the Schuykill River to the Delaware River. It has currently been gentrified, but at the time of this novel’s setting (1970s), it was part of the black ghetto. It was a street, during my times (1960s) where you went to buy stuff that you couldn’t get anywhere else in the [...]

    2. Brown is an African-American poet in Philadelphia in the late 1960s. Brother Fletcher is a deacon in a South Street church run by a smarmy preacher who takes advantage of his flock, his deacon, and the prettier members of his flock. Charlene is a hooker whose gangster lover pays her not to work so it won't be said that he relies on prostitutes for sex.

    4. "What about the poems?" I asked in my interview at school. "Oh, god, the poems," Bradley exclaimed. I think he'd been asked about them before.Had to visit South Street in Phila after reading this. Nice neighborhood.

    5. So textured, so funny. A treasure, a time capsule of a place I know so well--in another era. It's a testament to the quality of this book that I *finished* it, since fiction usually doesn't appeal or keep me through till the end. I was so wrapped up in this book. Once I finished, I even began to re-read from the beginning. (When does that happen?!) I'm sad the author hasn't written more, especially ones set in Philly (considering he lived/taught there for two decades). Finding this book was kism [...]
