Hill examines Hurston's concept of everyday-life drama as a basis for understanding distinctive features of African-American folk expression. Readers familiar with Hurston's work will enjoy the unique way in which Dr. Hill analyzes Hurston's folklore as part of a process rather than simply as texts severed from their field-research context.
