Uncle Otto thoroughly resonates with any African American whose family migrated from the rural South to the urban North during the twenties and thirties.

It is a fictional and vivid accounting of the life and times, which rings true. The characters are real; their stories, sometimes intriguing, but always entertaining. It is a must read for anyone wanting to get a feel of the culture and circumstances of citified blacks during and post World War ll.
