Praise

“A wonderful first-person narrative . . . both a love story and a chronicle of a brutal time in American history.” —Chicago Tribune

My Jim is a compelling, eloquently written novel that can stand on its own merits beside the great works that inspired it.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Rawles’s affecting spin-off of Twain’s classic gives the resilient Sadie Watson a harrowing story and a powerful voice to tell it.” —Entertainment Weekly

“In a spare, naturalistic style that’s reminiscent of oral history, Rawles covers territory Twain did not….As heart-wrenching a personal history as any recorded in American literature.” —New York Times Book Review
