Early Morning Reading – Pleasantville by Attica Locke

PLEASANTVILLE, the sequel to Attica Locke’s first novel, BLACK WATER RISING, features the return of attorney Jay Porter, now a widower with two children struggling to cope with the recent death of his wife.  Set in Houston, Texas in 1996, Porter becomes embroiled in a case involving politics, corruption and murder centered in the real life neighborhood of Pleasantville, one of Houston’s oldest black subdivisions.  For native black Houstonians, Pleasantville may be best known as the political base of the city’s elected black city council member, Judson Robinson, Jr.
