Reviews
"A marvel of imagination, empathy and detail."
--Stephen Kearse, New York Times

"This powerful novel about a modern black woman transported back in time to a slave plantation in the antebellum South is the perfect introduction to Butler's work and perspectives for those not usually enamored of science fiction. . . . A harrowing, haunting story."
--John Marshall, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Sixteen years after Butler's death, her legacy of fierce imagination feels more relevant than ever. With Kindred illuminating so much of the most compelling speculative fiction, the book stands as an icon for recasting today's challenges--envisioning new role models and possibilities in the process."
--Sheree Renée Thomas, Scientific American

"Reading Octavia Butler taught me to dream big, and I think it's absolutely necessary that everybody have that freedom and that willingness to dream."
--N. K. Jemisin

"Octavia Butler is a writer who will be with us for a long, long time, and Kindred is that rare magical artifact . . . the novel one returns to, again and again."
--Harlan Ellison

"In Kindred, Octavia Butler creates a road for the impossible and a balm for the unbearable. It is everything the literature of science fiction can be."
--Walter Mosley

"One of the most original, thought-provoking works examining race and identity."
--Lynell George, Los Angeles Times

"A startling and engrossing commentary on the complex actuality and continuing heritage of American slavery."
--Sherley Anne Williams, Ms.
