Praise for Colored Television:

“[A] brilliant, of-the-moment, just really almost perfect book.”—Kirkus Reviews, STARRED

“A complex and satisfying portrait of a woman struggling with the categories that define her.” Publishers Weekly

“I couldn’t stop turning the pages, and only when it was all over did I realize what Senna had done. Addictive, hilarious and relatable, yes, but Colored Television is after something larger and more elusive, a very modern reckoning with the ambiguities triangulated by race, class, creativity and love. She nails it.”—Miranda July, author of All Fours and The First Bad Man

“A riveting and exhilarating novel about making art and selling out, about being middle aged and precariously middle class. As fearless as she is funny, Danzy Senna is one of this country’s most thrilling writers.” Rumaan Alam, author of Leave the World Behind

Colored Television is hilarious. Senna writes with tenderness about the debasement of aspiration, and renders with acuity the mad place in the mind where fixation and avoidance are joined.” —Raven Leilani, author of Luster

“If you thought California was burning before, wait until you read how literary arsonist Danzy Senna gleefully incinerates its values through the eyes of Jane Gibson—a heroine whose insecurity, mistakes, and lies will keep you riveted from start to finish.” —James Hannaham, author of Delicious Foods and Nobody Gives a Shit What Happened to Carlotta

“Twisty, turny, and refreshingly relatable. You’ll read and wonder, ‘Is she in my head?’ I adore this novel.”Mateo Askaripour, author of Black Buck
