Writer, Teacher, Actor, Leader
This memoir tells the riveting story of what happened when the author took in a refugee from Hurricane Katrina until he could "get back on his feet" in a tale of complicated friendship, loss, and redemption.
In examining this relationship and time in his life, Hall also delves into the tragic events of his past, including his near-fatal brush with street crime in 1994. The book asks why people make the choices they do and how they overcome the wounds in their lives.
[A Quarter Inch From My Heart]...gritty, sometimes horrifying, but also absolutely triumphant after all is said and done. Where Hall's genius for narrative lies, as he equally proved in his novel "Off the Charts!," is in his character depictions.
