    I keep telling them naw, I didn't have nothing to do with that shit, but they don't believe me. That's how much I love you. And my mother was screaming, "Don't hurt her Roy! You coulda gave me a little bit more you know, but I understand if you was embarrassed, with my mother and cousin and brothers and shit all around. Mommy said that she gonna come to the courthouse with me when the jury come back.

    But still, what a strange and disappointing novel this is, its nuts and bolts so much in evidence there are times when what it resembles most is a diagram: a scheme, all long arrows and stark oppositions, to be marked out on some college whiteboard. And they aren't others. They can't deny everything your mother said, all the good stuff people said about you, what the experts said about you defending yourself. I wasn't about to get all fat and disgusting and have all my hair fall out. I guess when I get out of here and change my ways, I'm gonna get on that motherfucker for real.

    I'm gonna tell you alittle secret that you can't tell nobody and you better not show nobody this letter cause then they'll know. I never really been out of New York. Member all that "Crackdown on Putdowns" shit he tried when he got sick of us making fun of him for that Jamaican accent? Still, this is a moving, uplifting story of love and hope in the face of adversity.

They wanna put me under the jail so they won't have to worry about their purses or their big old rings being snatched. It kind of smelled like you when I walked by. If you think that's what you are, then that's how it's gonna sound when you get up there to tell your side of the story.

You can stay strong for the few months it's gonna take to get you out of there. How quickly I learned. We can only focus on the future.

HI FRIEND!

Each photo demands your attention. Plus, he said the judge might have some sympathy for me because of my age and what I been through.

And I was mad at my daddy, mad at him because he had to leave me and my mother and die. MGD and Mookie was laughing at me when I was talking on the phone with your ass, calling me whipped and sprung and shit cause I was apologizing so much.

I think I meant to do it. It tells a story of love: People making babies and making lives, holding each other as best they can.

You was the only person who ever listened to me, you mostly, maybe Trevon and Black. I don't know what I'm gonna do for the rest of the week, until we find out what they say. That's how I want to feel right now, like nothing in the world can touch me.

Anyway anyway, it's this place up on th and 7th where I know we could get a big diamond real cheap. Self shit that Mr. But my family is coming up--my mother and my brother and my partners are getting ready to get up there and start talking about things I don't want to talk about, things I don't want nobody to hear.

In the end, Natasha pens an exclamatory rant, and Antonio follows up with a letter that compliments with a more sincere finality to their extinguishing relationship. I can't believe I'm here. Excerpted by permission. Sing and pray.

I can still smell her Avon perfume, it's stuck in the air all around me, like she's still out here with me and holding me tight. Sometimes Ma.

Jun 14,  · “Upstate,” a new novel by the literary critic James Wood, brought this into focus for me as never before. It’s a slim book with a tiny cast doing little in a remote place, but it captures.

You’ll travel by comfortable motor coach, with your bilingual tour guide, enjoying the scenic landscape of upstate New York (travel time is approximately hours, each way, with one rest stop) on your journey north. "Upstate is resolutely a novel of character, and the intelligence that animates it is recognizably Wood’s If James Wood the novelist will ever outstrip Wood the critic, Upstate is a promising new start Family reconfiguration is Upstate’s overt theme, and that is treated with great subtlety and comic grace.".
