Product Details


Praise for Red at the Bone:

“[A] beautifully imagined novel. . . Woodson’s nuanced voice evokes the complexities of race, class, religion, and sexuality in fluid prose and a series of telling details. This is a wise, powerful, and compassionate novel.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Woodson famously nails the adolescent voice. But so, too, she burnishes all her characters’ perspectives. . . In Woodson, at the height of her powers, readers hear the blues: ‘beneath that joy, such a sadness.’”—Kirkus, starred review

“[A] remarkable and moving portrait of a family in a changing Brooklyn. . . There’s not a single unnecessary word.”—Refinery29

Praise for Jacqueline Woodson:

“Jacqueline Woodson is a master storyteller.” —Angela Flournoy, author of the National Book Award finalist The Turner House
“Every gorgeous page leads to another revelation, another poignant event or memory.” —Edwidge Danticat, National Book Award finalist and National Book Critics Circle Award winning author of Brother, I’m Dying  and Claire of the Sea Light
“Jacqueline Woodson has such an original vision, such a singular voice.” —Ann Patchett, New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth 
“Woodson brings the reader so close to her young characters that you can smell the bubble gum on their breath and feel their lips as they brush against your ear.”— Tayari Jones, New York Times-bestselling author of An American Marriage
“One of the quietly great masters of our time.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Woodson manages to remember what cannot be documented, to suggest what cannot be said.” — The Washington Post

“Woodson does for young black girls what short story master Alice Munroe does for poor rural ones: She imbues their everyday lives with significance. — Elle

“Woodson writes lyrically about what it means to be a girl in America, and what it means to be black in America. Each sentence is taut with potential energy, but the story never bursts into tragic flames; it stays strong and subtle throughout.” — The Huffington Post
