Leon Forrest, acclaimed author of "Divine Days," uses a remarkable verbal intensity to evoke human tragedy, injustice, and spirituality in his writing. As Toni Morrison has said, "All of Forrest's novels explore the complex legacy of Afro-Americans.

Born and raised in Chicago, Leon Forrest (1937-1997) taught English and African-American Studies at Northwestern University.
