NAACP’s The Defenders Online

Paula L. Woods just posted a review of A.D. on The Defenders Online, the blog of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. I was pleased to see her piece focusing on aspects of the book that many other reviewers have overlooked: the warmth of Abbas and Darnell’s friendship; the sadness and pessimism Leo felt when he first returned home to rebuild; the fulfilment Denise found when she began counseling battered women hurricane survivors. To my mind, Ms. Woods’ piece is one of the more thoughtful discussions of A.D. so far.
