"The most refreshing voice in the black idiom since readers first discovered Toni Morrison." -Claude Brown, author of Manchild in the Promised Land "One is quickly beguiled . . . so gracefully to Miss Naylor fuse together the epic and the naturalistic, the magical and the real." -The New York Times "With Linden Hills, Naylor has constructed a place for herself among the leading contemporary writers of fiction." -Los Angeles Times Book Review "Every page contains a brilliant insight, a fine description, some petty and human, some grandiloquent." -Chicago Tribune
