This novel by Charles Johnson is a fiction about a real person: Martin Luther King. Many of the events described are factual, but Johnson has introduced an imaginary character: King's double. The collisions between reality and imagination are dizzying and don't always tend toward persuasiveness. Still, it's a compelling read that inspires you to learn more about King and think about what might have been and could still be.
