Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1965, The Keepers of the House is Shirley Ann Graus masterwork, a many-layered indictment of racism and rage that is as terrifying as it is wise.

For people who do not remember the segregation issues of the past, this is a great example of how life was lived and felt in the past.
