"An impressive debut, and a writer to watch."
"Strap yourself in for a fast-paced, multilayered ride that gets the details right and in the process puts a human face on crack addiction."
–Diane McKinney-Whetstone, author of Blues Dancing
"There’s a new Harlem Renaissance, this time from the City of Brotherly Love. Pipe Dream captures perfectly the sites and sounds of the city, thus Solomon Jones takes his place within this new literary movement."
–Omar Tyree, the Urban Griot and author of Just Say No!
"Pipe Dream is a phenomenal and honest tale of lives often overlooked and stories often untold. Jones reminds us that the surface-level truth often depends on who’s telling it, and the deeper truth comes only when we’re at peace with the lives we’ve led and the choices we’ve made."
–Brian Peterson, author of Move Over, Girl
