Trickster at the Gate
by
John Patrick Bray

Nell is the human incarnation of the Yoruba God Esu Elegba, who is being forced to live a mortal life as penance for human deformities and suffering. We are given a glimpse of three time periods: her life in Southern Louisiana; during the Harlem Renaissance; and finally, Nell as an old woman, nearly forgotten by everyone.
