Praise

“Petry will always feel on time. Her kind of talent will always feel startling and sui generis: The music of her sentences, and their discipline; her unerring sense of psychology; the fullness with which she endows each character, which must be understood as a kind of love; the plots that commandeer whole hours and days. . . . Her work endures not only because it illuminates reality, but because it harnesses the power of fiction to supplant it.” — Parul Sehgal, The New York Times

“Newly reissued, Ann Petry’s novels The Street and The Narrows are masterpieces of social realism … this reissue makes clear that her writing transcends comparisons. It’s volatile but exacting, heartbreaking but often brutally funny. Labels don’t stick to it.”  — Sam Sacks, The Wall Street Journal
