Reviews

Critical praise for Knucklehead by Adam Smyer:

Adam Smyer was named the African American Literary Awards Show's Break-Out Author of 2018 for Knucklehead!

"By setting his novel in the '90s, Smyer, who lives in Oakland, has crafted some brutal déjà vu. As Marcus reflects on Rodney King, the Million Man March and the Oklahoma City bombing, we think of Freddie Gray, Black Lives Matter and school shootings that have become a way of life. And when Marcus laments San Francisco's dwindling black population, here we are more than 20 years on, and it's only gotten worse. We should all be furious."
--San Francisco Chronicle
