In a peaceful. prosperous African American neighborhood in Los Angeles lives Mack Street. a mystery child. Abandoned by his birth mother and raised by a blunt-speaking single woman. Mack passes from family to family. a boy surrounded by people yet deeply alone. He realizes how different he is from others the day he sees. in a thin slice of space. a narrow house. Passing through the magic house that no one else can see. Mack is plunged into a realm where time and reality are skewed. Inside. what Mack does has strange effects on the „real world” of concrete. cars. commerce. and conflict. Growing into a tall. powerful young man and pursuing a forbidden relationship.

Both a novel of constantly surprising entertainment and a tale of breathtaking literary power. Magic Street is a masterwork from a supremely gifted. utterly original American writer-a novel that uses realism and fantasy to delight. challenge. and satisfy on the most profound levels.
