Summary and Book Reviews
All Aunt Hagar's Children: Summary and book reviews of All Aunt Hagar's Children by Edward Jones, plus links to an excerpt from All Aunt Hagar's Children and a biography of Edward Jones.
Like Jones's mother, his characters mainly originate from the rural South and are coping with the urbanization of their lives with varying degrees of success. However, even though most have left to find a better life, many of the older people tend to long for the life they knew when they were young - a time somewhere in the short period following the northern migration of the children and grand-children of the former slaves, when it was still possible to feel part of a small community in the big city.
