The Prices are introduced by Viola, the family's outspoken matriarch: Her husband, Cecil, has shut the door behind him for the last time; and their four adult kids, scattered across the country, seem determined to send her to her grave, or at least to the hospital with worrying. Paris is divorced, mother to a nearly seventeen-year-old son and the one who always comes to everybody's rescue, although she doesn't have a clue as to how to save herself. Lewis is the scapegoat, and his troubles keep landing him in jail, which only seems to confirm what his family thinks he is. Out in Chicago, Charlotte knows she's gotten the short end of the stick for years, has nothing in common except blood with her parents and siblings and would just as soon divorce them all. Janelle, the baby of the family, is not only on the defensive about the course of her own life but she's facing a new crisis, a fast-brewing storm with her teenage daughter that threatens more than she's willing to admit. And don't even ask Viola about Cecil: He's a bad habit I've had for thirty-eight years which would make him my husband. But Cecil has some ideas for taking his hardworking life into his own hands, regardless of what his wife and kids think about it. Download and start listening now!

    " Even if this is not your family, the characters in this book will remind you of somebody. "

    " Good to listen to because of the dialects. Well defined characters, but I didn't enjoy them all, so I found myself getting tense when certain characters were speaking. Somewhat predictable, but enjoyable to listen to. "

    " This book didn't get a lot of love, but I enjoyed it nonetheless because Ms. McMillan has such a biting kind of humor. She also has a "cultural" humor so if you are not African American, you might miss out on a few nuances that are actually hillarious. As for the family dynamics, she nailed it. Who doesn't some level of this dynamic right in their own backyards? Come on...tell the truth, shame the devil! (smile) "
