In 2004, Edward P. Jones won the Pulitzer for his first novel, The Know World. I found the book at once disturbing and thought-provoking. It is a book you can't be indifferent about, which I think is good.
I read today's story in the O. Henry Prize Stories 2006 collection and decided that I must share it here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
