"Ain't it funny how we understand each other?" a customer asks Mama Evans, owner of the Curl-E-Que hair salon in Harlem, New York. These moving, intertwined stories demonstrate the many ways that the neighbors on 145th Street truly do understand one another. From the story of a dying father's last loving gesture to that of a young girl who doesn't realize how beautiful she is until a neighbor paints her portrait, this collection, full of individuals searching for and finding love, is also the story of their community. Library edition with trade jacket added.
