Terry McMillian does a first class job of capturing the complex and dynamic tension of family relationships in A Day Late and a Dollar Short. The characters are powerful and real, and the theme of family dissension masking a hard-fought love is universal. McMillian is both a superb storyteller and a woman possessed of a clear musical magic with words.
