Ashley Douglas thinks everything should fall into place when he’s released after three years in prison. His friends should come to his welcome home party. (They don’t.) His girlfriend, Linda, should greet him with open arms and open legs. (She doesn’t.) So Ashley, a forty-something African-American, restarts his life with next to nothing: no friends, no lovers, no connections. He has is a bedroom in his mom’s house, a box of treasures he buried in his back yard, and a nostalgic and deeply ingrained need to be with Linda-his one, true love.  That is, until he meets a new friend, Jeremy, and things start to turn around.

“A sweet, shambling poem to the tenacity of hope and the sustaining power of friendship.” — Jeannette Catsoulis,  NY Times
