TONI MORRISON says:
Elegantly written, powerful…moving personal recollections; profound cultural analysis; and guidance for moral redemption. A work to relish.
STEPHEN KING says:
Here’s a sermon that’s as fierce as it is lucid. If you’re black, you’ll feel a spark of recognition in every paragraph. If you’re white, Dyson tells you what you need to know… This is a major achievement. I read it and said amen.
PATRICK PHILLIPS, The New York Times Book Review says:
[An] urgent book… Should take its place in the tradition of Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time.
