Asali Solomon's characters are vivid misfits--a heathen at Jesus
camp, a scheming prep-school student, a middle-aged mom pining for
her salsa-dancing salad days, a scheming twentysomething virgin, a
college stud in love with his weight-lifting partner, a lonely girl
in love with a yellow dress. The kids in "Get Down "are trapped
between their own good breeding and their burning desire to join
the house party of sex, romance, and bad behavior that seems to be
happening on some other block, down some other, more dangerous
street. "Get Down "is, in the words of Edward P. Jones, "touching
and sensitively observed . . . from the first word to the last."
