Product Details

Praise

“REMARKABLE . . . A GRIPPING BOOK.”
–Newsday

“A moving story that makes the tragedy of Amadou Diallo’s death all the more poignant and present. With the help of Craig Wolff, Kadiatou Diallo shows us the roots of her son’s story in Africa and in a mother’s heart.”
–JULIA ALVAREZ

“A rare, rich, and quite moving portrait . . . in prose that is alive with the smell of herbs, the taste of sweet sauces, the weight of deep traditions, the tensions of political life in post-colonial Africa.”
The Washington Post Book World

“An unexpectedly enchanting, unflinching story of Amadou’s upbringing, culture, and his mother’s life struggles in their native Guinea.”
Upscale magazine

“This lyrical memoir is both moving and disturbing. Its subtle tone exposes the aggression inherent in patriarchy (whether it functions in rural Africa or the New York City police department) in a way that the usual rhetoric cannot.”
–ACHMAT DANGOR
