Come Get Some is a vivid tale of street life and the struggle to
conquer poverty and discover one's self through the indomitable will of
the human spirit.
Four friends -- Mugwump, Whiteboy Paul, Truitt, and Willmon Angel --
are tragic outcasts plunged into a world of shifting morality, sexual
exploration and the stinging reality of racism. An illicit relationship
with a high school English teacher, a tragic altercation with the
police and a youthful indiscretion force them each to confront their
personal demons, revealing hard truths that alter their lives forever.
When one of the friends is murdered, their friendship is shattered and
his violent death tears their clique apart as they go their separate
ways. Years later, they are reunited and when forced to face the
consequences of their actions they hatch a plan to exact revenge on the
man responsible for the murder.
Thrust into a world of shifting morality, sexual exploration, and
encountering the stinging reality of racism, Come Get Some bridges the
gap between a literary, yet fully entertaining style of storytelling.
Nane Quartay's bold, literary style captures thoughtful, social
commentary through a fast-paced narrative. Come Get Some is a story of
survival, friendship, tragedy, and ultimate redemption -- revealing how
the bonds of friendship can give people the power they need to overcome
all obstacles that life sets in their path.
