The Portable Promised Land

Stories

This inspired collection of stories is cause for celebration. With stunning language and dazzling characters, Toure introduces Soul City — a wholly imagined utopia where magic happens and black is beautiful. In a broad range of characterization and styles, “The Portable Promised Land” is filled with lighthearted humor and heavyhearted issues.
