內容簡介 "With wit and grace, Campbell shows how all our stories--white, black, male female--ultimately intertwine."--Time Set against the smoldering embers of post-riot Los Angeles, Brothers and Sisters confirms Bebe Moore Campbell's reputation for fiction that "cuts close to the bone of real life" (Atlanta Journal). Esther Jackson is a bank manager who's worked hard to keep her passions in check. Sensitive to injustice, but struggling against hostility and mistrust, she forms a tentative friendship with Mallory Post, a white coworker who seems sometimes to live in a different--and unreachable--world. But when an attractive black man is hired as a senior vice president at the bank, with troubling and unexpected consequences for both of these women, Esther is forced to question her deepest loyalties and desire--and what really makes us "brothers and sisters."
