Praise for the previous works of Marita Golden

“Marita Golden’s novel [The Edge of Heaven] brings us—with sensitivity and deft artistry—the precious stories of three generations of women in the aftermath of a tragedy that has torn each from herself and each from the others. Golden’s women are altogether knowable and most unforgettable: their struggle to find their way back to some tiny form of normalcy will make a place in a reader’s memory and heart.”
—Edward P. Jones, Author of The Known World

“Golden has a rare gift for the poetry of language.” —San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle

“Marita Golden writes with a fine hand.” —Newsday

“An acclaimed chronicler of Black women’s lives.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[Long Distance Life is] a novel of impressive artistry and power.” —Washington Post
