Witness: Stories by Jamel Brinkley

In Witness, Jamel Brinkley's short stories harness intense emotional impact in short order. Each character—from a sister grieving her brother's murder by the police to a lonely woman humorously and achingly reaching out to a food delivery person—is searching to be seen and heard. Will others, even those closest to them, only bear witness or become involved in the messy and fraught nature of life, love and loss? With each new collection, Brinkley shows he is a masterful observer of the human condition.
