In Powell’s hands identities that we try to keep separate become intimately entwined . . . the living within the dying, the foreigner within the native born, the male within the female. Her tales unfold like dreams spread out on a table.”–Danzy Senna, author of Caucasia

“Powell combines the same lyrical imagery, piercing insight, and confident narrative sense that made Me Dying Trial one of the most impressive debuts . . . Powell writes with subtlety and craft.”–Boston Phoenix Literary Section

A Small Gathering of Bones is a rare portrayal of literary fiction as an artistic whole. No other work of fiction presents the trauma and triumph that AIDS engenders. After Powell’s first novel, Me Dying Trial, this is a second step off into the universe of a rising new talent.”–New England Review of Books
