Praise

"There is a tough and necessary beauty in this writing, in these finely-detailed portraits of funny, infuriating, heroic people–. Orlandersmith hears the human need for dignity and justice, for love–. She is critic, witness, and poet."–Tony Kushner, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angels in America

"[Orlandersmith’s] depictions of the characters in her native East Harlem neighborhood–some broken, some on the way down–are passionate and full of insight."–The New Yorker

"An exciting new voice–of fiery rebellion and lilting lyricism–at once full of anger and compassion."–The New York Times
