Reviews

"Even the air is palpable in TUMBLING. . . . The story moves forth on the power of Ms. Mckinney-Whetstone's characters. Ms. McKinney-Whetstone captures the formidable struggle to protect both a community and a family."--New York Times Book Review
"A densely textured narrative that proves as rich and filling as a well-cooked meal. McKinney-Whetstone's remarkably skillful first effort should place her at the forefront of a generation of emerging African-American women novelists. McKinney-Whetstone is clearly a smart, careful writer who's created a page-turner of a novel with abundant style and irresistible charm."--Washington Post Book World
"An accomplished novel, with sharply drawn characters, exuberant prose, plenty of period detail and a wise, forgiving outlook on family life."--Los Angeles Times Book Review
"[A] beautifully written tale [and] a lyrical read."--USA Today
"[A] remarkable first novel. . . . The story probes beneath its residents' lives to tell a powerful tale of damage and healing."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
