Reviews

"An inspirational, cutting, exquisitely written, multilevel excavation of forgotten Black lives and an Afro-queer celebration of art, aesthetics, literature, and society."--Paul Mendez, author of "Rainbow Milk"
"In choosing to conjure Black voices through historical revisionism, rather than, say, Afrofuturism or pure fiction, the novel produces a new archive--a radical reference tool populated by real and imagined historical figures, Anons who have been festooned, fleshed-out, and freed from the rude imposition of marginality, anonymity and defacement."--Izabella Scott, "White Review"
"LOTE is a rapturous first novel, a queer black fantasy with angels leaping off every page."--Molara Wood "Irish Times"
"Von Reinhold's rich and glorious writing . . . reads as though--to put it in their own description of a room draped in candlelight--everything has been smeared with gold oil. . . . It's more than just the bliss of representation: history here is feeling, not just narrative."--Skye Arundhati Thomas "Frieze Magazine"
"Set amid an artist residency, this arresting debut effortlessly explores infatuation, reinvention, the erasure of black figures from history and gender identities in what marks von Reinhold as a unique new voice in literary fiction."--Layla Haidrani "AnOther Magazine"
"As a celebration of eccentric esprit, LOTE practises what it preaches by being stubbornly its own thing."--Houman Barekat "The Guardian"
