Aunt Hagar's Update

As I may have mentioned earlier, I'm reading Edward P. Jones' short story collection All Aunt Hagar's Children.

One of the cool thing's about short stories is they are occasionally available online. The other day I linked the story "Old Boys, Old Girls." I am currently reading the title story (viewable here). The first story, "In the Blink of God's Eye," is excerpted here. Sorry, "Resurrecting Methuselah" is nowhere to be found in the ether.

These stories are riveting tales that spin from the hearts and thoughts of African-Americans in the Washington D.C. area.

Just in case you didn't know, some of the pieces in All Aunt Hagar's Children were published in The New Yorker. Just in case you were wondering. I have to give a presentation on 1-2 stories from the book, so I'm doing a lot of research....
