A NovelPre-loaded Audiobook - 2011
Nine year old Abdul is left alone to navigate in a world where love and hate sometimes hideously masquerade, forced to confront unspeakable violence, his history, and the dark corners of his own heart. Abdul claws his way toward adulthood and toward an identity he can stand behind. In a generational story that moves with the speed of thought from a Mississippi dirt farm to Harlem in its heyday; from a troubled Catholic orphanage to downtown artists' lofts, The Kid tells of a twenty-first-century young man's fight to find a way to the future. Intimate, terrifying, deeply alive, in Abdul's journey we are witness to an artist's birth by fire.
