Reviews
"A gutsy depiction of a soul in America...Powerfully evocative and inspired."--The Boston Globe

"Mama is extremely funny throughout and at the same time honest about what a good woman will do to push her children higher than she can hope to go...touching and steadfastly unsentimental."--Detroit Free Press

"Mama distinguishes itself by its exuberant sensibility...a fine novel."--The New York Times Book Review

"Mama has Zora Neale Hurston's vernacular humor and John Irving's absurdity. McMillan is a master of black humor in both senses of the phrase."--The Village Voice
