"Exciting new fiction from James McBride, the first since his National Book Award-winning novel The Good Lord Bird. The stories in Five-Carat Soul--none of them ever published before--spring from the place where identity, humanity, and history converge. They're funny and poignant, insightful and unpredictable, imaginative and authentic--all told with McBride's unrivaled storytelling skill and meticulous eye for character and detail. McBride explores the ways we learn from the world and the people around us. An antiques dealer discovers that a legendary toy commissioned by Civil War General Robert E. Lee now sits in the home of a black minister in Queens. Five strangers find themselves thrown together and face unexpected judgment. An American president draws inspiration from a conversation he overhears in a stable. And members of The Five-Carat Soul Bottom Bone Band recount stories from their own messy and hilarious lives. As McBride did in his National Book award-winning The Good Lord Birdandhis bestselling The Color of Water, he writes with humor and insight about how we struggle to understand who we are in a world we don't fully comprehend. The result is a surprising, perceptive, and evocative collection of stories that is also a moving exploration of our human condition"--… (mer)

Of all the stories in this book I found 3 that were worthwhile/memorable though not in a significantly as compared to other short story authors. Most stories emanate from the Five Carat Soul band, a group of black teens whose lives are impacted by a variety of events. The first story however was about a successful toy collector who stumbles into a one of a kind toy train set handed down to a dedicated black Reverend who had no idea of its worth. Regardless, these stories were OK in my opinion ( )

Not the most remarkable collection of short stories, but I liked the structure and the use of different readers on the audio. Mr. P and the Wind was my fave. ( )

Wow, what a versatile, fluid, imaginative writer. The stories have a wide range of subject matter, but they all have in common a solid core of humanity. In this coarse and divided time, I drank these stories in deeply, like someone who’s just come from the desert. ( )

This group of short stories are very wide ranging in their subject matter and style. They use different times in history, deal with fantasy, animals communicating, and mostly deal with the black experience. McBride won the National Book Award for "The Good Lord Bird" which I read and thoroughly enjoyed. This collection deals with black soldiers in both the Civil and World War II. He also has a very creative story about a toy collector and a train created specifically for General Robert E. Lee. Not al the stories work perfectly but there is no denying the creativity. This is a good introduction to McBride and if these work for you, then you should definitely read "The Good Lord Bird". ( )

Fantastic story teller. Series of short stories, some of them related to each other. ( )
