Reviews

Edwidge Danticat The Washington Post The Fisher King masterfully carries us back and forth between the streets of Paris and the brownstones of Brooklyn, among French, American, Caribbean, and African-American cultures, and between a present that can't be avoided and a past that won't be dismissed....This is one of those novels that you will be reading again and again for many years.
Valerie Boyd Atlanta Journal-Constitution Lean and beautifully written, this novel -- like the jazz at its core -- swings and soars and deeply satisfies.
