“West is a wonderful storyteller, painting vivid and memorable scenes of the life and plight of African Americans from slavery to the fifties.  The Wedding is an engrossing tale.”- USA Today

“In The Wedding, West brilliantly portrays the ferocity of class, race, and gender distinctions within family, groups, and generations.”- Entertainment Weekly

“Dorothy West is an epic storyteller.”- Quarterly Black Review of Books

The Wedding‘s prose has biblical rhythms and echoes of William Faulkner.  This novel of Dorothy West’s later life is luminous, unexpected gift that should bring her a new generation of admirers.”- The Washington Post
