Great fiction new and old. 

"The road goes north and south, you choose which way you go." So goes a thought running throughout the new novel "Colors of the Wheel." The insightful novel captures some of the complexities of race consciousness in America. The well-written segmented character developments blend into a composite of unified reflection on nuances of race, culture and society. Something for everyone. Good discussion novel, especially for white folks. Can't speak for people of color. I've purchased a number of copies to give to friends.
