Them

Them

by Nathan McCall

Judy Stanton (02/04/12): THEM...it's a convenient way we all refer to a group of people we lump together, but don't really know, who often, have done something we don't agree with. Nathan McCall effectively uses that word in his novel about gentrification in the Fourth Ward in Atlanta, with both African Americans and Anglo Saxons blaming "them" for what's wrong in their neighborhood. Having worked downtown and had a niece who lived in "transitional" neighborhoods, I can relate to many of the locations McCall references in his very provocative novel. Them makes you look at both sides of the story and see how different it is when we relate to people one-on-one, not just as "them." A good read.
