City Hall is demanding more than his signature, the Landlord wants him out, the liquor store is closed, and the Church won’t leave him alone. As ex-cop and recent widower Walter “Pops” Washington struggles to hold on to one of the last great rent-stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive, he must also contend with with old wounds, new houseguests, and a final ultimatum. It seems the old days are dead and gone — after a lifetime living between Riverside and Crazy.

The Humans “infuses the traditional kitchen-sink family drama with qualities of horror in his portentous and penetrating work of psychological unease” (Variety), creating an indelible family portrait.

This fiercely provocative and funny collection also includes Dawn, Fulfillment, Southern Promises, Job, Strom Thurmond Is Not a Racist, Lecture on the Blues, and Purity.
