About the Author

Asali Solomon was born and raised in Philadelphia. Get Down, her first book, earned her a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Award, was chosen as one of the National Book Foundation's "5 Under 35" for 2007, and was a finalist for the Hurston-Wright Legacy Award.

Reviews

"American literature tends to offer its black characters only two moods to play: angry or mad . . . which is why Asali Solomon's debut collection, Get Down, comes as such a blessed relief. Angry and mad make appearances, but so do confused, awkward, hopeful and sincere." --Victor Lavalle, Paste

"Fresh, intimate portraits of people trying to straddle contradictory worlds. While Asali Solomon writes with uncanny acumen about men, Get Down will resonate with anyone--male or female, black or white, young or old--who has ever felt like an outsider." --Jennifer Egan
