Summary
For fifteen years August Sitwell has worked for the Barclays, a well-to-do white family who plucked him from an orphan asylum and gave him a job. The groundskeeper is part of the household's all-black staff, along with 'Miss Mamie,' the talented cook, pretty new maid Jennie Williams, and three young kitchen apprentices, the latest orphan boys Mr. Barclay has taken in to civilize; boys like August. But the Barclays fortunes have fallen, and their money is almost gone. When a prospective business associate proposes selling Miss Mamie's delicious rib sauce to local markets under the brand name 'The Rib King', using a caricature of a wildly grinning August wearing a chef's hat and jewel-encrusted crown on the label, Mr. Barclay, desperate for cash, agrees. Yet neither Miss Mamie nor August will see a dime. Humiliated but bound to a ten-year contract he cannot break, August grows increasingly distraught, his anger building to a rage that explodes in shocking tragedy
