Praise

Praise for Nathan McCall and Makes Me Wanna Holler:

“Sooner of later, every generation must find its voice. It may be that ours belongs to Nathan McCall, whose memoir is…a stirring tale of transformation. He is a mesmerizing storyteller.” –Henry Lous Gates, Jr., The New Yorker

“Angry, eloquent, and powerful… a relentlessly honest book filled with pain, triumph, rage and humor, high and low.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review 

“So honest, so well-written, so powerful that it will leave you shaken and educated. The book belongs in every prison library and affluent country club. No one–black or white, rich or poor–will come away unrewarded.” —USA Today

“Not since Claude Brown’s Manchild in the Promised Land has there been such an honesyt and searching look at the perils of growing up a black male in urban America…a compelling depiction of the toll that racism and misguided notions of manhood have taken in the life of one black man–and, by implication, many others.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Soul-searing…an unsettling account of the human consequences of an American tragedy.” —Time

“Both poignant and disturbing…Makes Me Wanna Holler has the feel of a classic…There is value and depth to what [McCall] reveals. And, above all, there is two-fisted honesty, unflinching in its recognition of the multifaceted dynamic of America’s unmitigated neurosis…Obscene, fiery, in-you-face [and] utterly believable” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“With great technical skill and insight, McCall…shows the humanity of a population commonly perceived as menacing….And, he offers sane, well-reasoned explanations for why that group seems to be at the center of so much urban distress….Required reading for anyone interested in American race relations.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

Makes Me Wanna Holler will become a modern classic. It is Manchild in the Promised Land for a new generation.” —Claude Brown
