Meteor in the Madhouse

Synopsis

"Meteor in the Madhouse is made up of five interconnected novellas framed by an account of the last days in the life of playwright Joubert Antoine Jones, a character immortalized in Divine Days. Refining motifs found in Forrest's earlier works, Meteor in the Madhouse is a celebration of the rich, complex, and ambiguous aspects of twentieth-century African American culture."
