Product Details


★ “In this Whitman-esque ode to time and the city, the “crazy quilt patterns” of Harlem are reflected in the voices of the neighborhood’s “big-time people and its struggling folk”…. One of Myers’s best—and that’s saying a lot. Sure to be a classic.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

★ “In nearly 60 poems, Myers treats readers to a tour of Harlem’s past and present, its hopes and fears, through the voices of narrators young and old…. Myers offers differing perspectives on milestone events such as Jackie Robinson joining the Dodgers, as well as subjects closer to home….And Harlem is indeed home, to all of the people who give voice to its pains and pleasures. Readers will want to visit again and again. —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
