The Greeks may have set the template for epics, but American history is filled with events that can easily inspire epics of their own. Father Comes Home From The Wars, like the Greek tragedies that inspired it, is the story of a warrior setting out for battle and then the long journey home. Only in this case, the warrior is a slave following his master to fight for the Confederate Army. Set during the Civil War, this explosively powerful new trilogy by Pulitzer Prize-winner Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) follows the slave, Hero, from West Texas to the Confederate battlefield and back home again. Described as Parks' "finest work yet" by The New York Times, the Father Comes Home From The Wars trilogy is a masterful blend of the serious and the comic that is at once an epic drama, a moving personal story and a thoughtful meditation on liberty and loyalty.
