From the back cover: “Set in 1948, Pic is told by a ten-year old black boy, Pictorial Review Jackson, in the black dialect indigenous to the North Carolina farm country. It is of Pic’s adventures – in his native state, in New York, and on the road – with his brother Slim who has ‘adopted’ him after the death of his grandfather. In his candid way, Pic defines aspects of black life that foreshadow the civil rights movement of the sixties”.
