    • Abstract:
      Vinson Cunningham's novel, "Great Expectations," explores the coming-of-age of an artist named David Hammond, who works on Barack Obama's presidential campaign. While the novel is set against the backdrop of the campaign, it primarily focuses on Hammond's intellectual and spiritual development, his musings on God, and his aspirations to become a writer. The book delves into themes of faith, destiny, and the power of language, and offers a unique perspective on Black life, relationships, and the internal world of a burgeoning Black artist. "Great Expectations" is an innovative and distinctive novel that challenges the representation of Black narratives in the publishing industry. [Extracted from the article]
