The article presents information on the book "The Chain in the Heart," by Hubert Creekmore. Creekmore has the power of accurate vision and a corresponding sense of language. Much of the time Creekmore remains to comment on the actions of his characters. But when he supervises them from a distance, one is charmed by his art. The relations between three generations of a Southern Black family are excellently drawn. Creekmore's characters, when the writer lets them speak instead of speaking for them, disturb us with their difficulties and delight us with their small joys.
