"Harris offers a moving story filled with warmth and believable, real-life situations."
"So much humor is sprinkled through E. Lynn Harris’s warm and timely new novel, And This Too Shall Pass, that we almost miss the pain lying underneath or the significance of its theme: Harris, who has written poignant love stories about African American life before, turns eloquently again to the question of how people–black people in this case–learn to love in a tough and toughening society."
–Pat Holt, San Francisco Chronicle
"A breakout bestseller that features a sizzling mix of fast-paced storytelling, topical subject matter and lyrical sexuality."
–Paula L. Woods, Dallas Morning News
"It is rare to read a novel with African American characters as refreshing as these…Harris keeps the dialogue lively and the action zipping along while fully developing story and characters."
