The Elder by Aileen Muhammad & Nathan Ross Freeman. Two Philadelphia natives meet at Salem College in Winston Salem. Nathan Ross Freeman is Aileen Muhammad’s poetry and screenwriting professor. She believes he is her blood brother by some accidental occurrence. He says maybe in another life. She begins to write stories. He shares his and here they are. The threads that weave the fabric of these stories, the entry into the avenue of the muse and the poetic conjures are startling and satisfying.
