Praise

“Remarkably readable and entertaining . . . Offers a window on the real social dynamics—race, culture, and prejudices—of the time, and may offer grounds for reflection on how much things have changed. Or haven’t.” —from the Foreword by Diana Gabaldon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series

“One of the most influential and one of the most invisible novels in the history of American literature . . . It remains a vital novel today as racial profiling, deportations, criminalization, police violence, and racialized dispossession continue to devastate American communities in spite of putatively ‘colorblind’ laws [and] offers a bracing rejoinder to racially disproportionate rates of incarceration, the systemic nature of antiblack police brutality, and the intensified militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border fueled by racial stereotypes such as President Trump’s invocation of ‘bad hombres.’  . . . A classic American story of anti-racist insurrection.” —from the Introduction by Hsuan L. Hsu
