Having a baby at fourteen does not prevent African-American Catherine from hopping a train out of segregated Mississippi to join the Harlem Renaissance in New York. She takes up with a Mexican writer from California, and, as the years pass, she finally realizes her childhood dream of becoming a doctor. Each grape-picking season, she flies out of the big City to operate a free clinic on the hacienda of her sometimes companion, but every personal success is laced with guilt for not doing enough to change a world in which people struggle merely to survive. Love In Times of Outrage riffs on character-as-author in real life and in a surreal Dreamtime that Catherine brings out of a Mississippi. In this consciousness--like trances associated with Indio healers of the Southwest--Catherine and Felipe escape the limits of time into a world still soft enough at the seams to invite true believers in to quest for a little justice. The story becomes magical real and is often haunting as a poem.
