Praise

“A rich and compelling narrative, as taut and suspenseful as good fiction. In places, Stories of Scottsboro is almost heartbreaking, not least because Goodman shows what people felt as well as what they thought.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Extraordinary…. To do justice to the Scottsboro story a book would have to combine edge-of-the-seat reportage and epic narrative sweep. And it is just such a book that James Goodman has given us, a beautifully realized history…written with complete authority, tight emotional control, and brilliant use of archival material.” —Chicago Tribune

“This gripping book does much more than tell the story of Scottsboro with new information and insight. It invents a new way of writing history. Like a kaleidoscope, the author rotates the stories told by various participants in that cause of the 1930s, causing new patterns to emerge until they take a form we can call truth.” —James M. McPherson
