Captures the imagination and the heart.--Jacinta Howard
Takes us backstage at the Apollo and into the smoky, late-night clubs where the art of jazz is fashioned before our eyes...The reader is buffeted by the transformative waves of race and music in America.--Jonathan Odell
[A] novel to curl up with...Irresistible.
An absolute marvel of a book. Jacinda Townsend is dazzling as she transports the reader to a different time and place.--Roxane Gay, author of Difficult Women and Hunger
This stunner of a novel--set in Kentucky just before Civil Rights blows Jim Crow to pieces--tracks the lives of two young black women, both outsiders, both searching, and the thorny friendship that holds them together.--Junot DΓ­az
