The hip-hop culture on the south side of Chicago links these short stories that are otherwise very different from each other in subject and approach. Stark scenes of gang violence, drug use, and prison life are contrasted with light and humorous stories, and the grittiness of urban life is softened by the preoccupations of adolescence, the chance for romance, or the ordinary moments of family life.

Tony Lindsay's Pieces of the Hole is a compilation of stories that read like real life. Mr. Lindsay takes you swiftly into the lives of his characters, allowing you to feel them in a few short pages. In many ways, his stories reminded me of the old-school Negro story tellers. On the other hand, his voice is so current and fresh, the stories are very much new-school. What I found particularly refreshing is that he would lead you in a direction, yet land you someplace else. There was also a redemptive quality to the stories that rang of hope, truth and change.

Real Life was one of my favorite stories because it told of the many ways in which people relate romantically and as family. It also touched on how much we take for granted or how much people assume they know about those closest to them. Within the compilation, there were laugh-out-loud moments at the pure absurdities of life. I enjoyed every single story in this short story collection.

I recommend Pieces of the Hole to all readers who enjoy true life short stories. This is the first book by Tony Lindsay I have had the pleasure of reading, however, I plan to read others.

Pieces of the Hole is a collection of short stories that focuses on different aspects of African-American life. The book is separated into two parts. Part One, which is titled Old Folks and City Kids, features stories about everyday situations. The standout stories in this part of the book include "Mackey's Place," "Life on TV," and "Real Life." Part Two of the book takes on a darker and sinister approach and is appropriately titled A Lil' Twisted. The standout stories in this section of the book include "Brotherly Love," "My Father's Day," and "The Finishing Place." Pieces of the Hole expertly showcases the wonderfully imaginative mind of Tony Lindsay.
