A Slave's Epic Journey: Father Comes Home From the Wars by Pulitzer Prize Winner Suzan-Lori Parks
$10 - $20*
The Greeks may have set the template for epics, but American history is filled with events that can easily inspire epics of their own. Father Comes Home From the Wars, like the Greek tragedies that inspired it, is the story of a warrior setting out for battle and then making the long journey home. But in this case, the warrior is a slave who has been offered his freedom in exchange for fighting for the Confederacy. Set in the Civil War, this explosively powerful new trilogy by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) at Atlanta's Actor's Express follows the slave, Hero, from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield and back home again. Described as Parks' "finest work yet" by The New York Times, the Father Comes Home From the Wars trilogy -- which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist -- is a masterful blend of the serious and the comic that is at once an epic drama, a moving personal story and a thoughtful meditation on liberty and loyalty.
