Miz Lil & the Chronicles of Grace
Miz Lil and the Chronicles of Grace evokes the experience of growing up American and living out a spiritual quest. Culled from author Walter Wangerin's childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, and his years as an inner-city pastor, these twelve interwoven stories, beautifully told, lend flesh, feeling, and immediacy. We meet Grandpa Storck, a man of immense stature and enduring love. Jolanda Jones, whose beauty and brazen mannerisms belie a haunting vulnerability. And unforgettable Miz Lil, whose few, quiet words speak with the force of sorrow, experience, and faith. Full of emotion and passion, Miz Lil and the Chronicles of Grace unfolds the moving story of a pastor and storyteller's career, in which the deeply spiritual and the warmly human walk together.
