Reviews

"The Street and The Narrows are masterpieces of social realism . . . . [Petry's] writing transcends comparisons. It's volatile but exacting, heartbreaking but often brutally funny. Labels don't stick to it." -- Wall Street Journal

"The Narrows represents the full flowering of Petry's preoccupation with human relationships." -- Hilary Holladay

"Petry will always feel on time. Her kind of talent will always feel startling and sui generis. . . . Her work endures not only because it illuminates reality, but because it harnesses the power of fiction to supplant it." -- Parul Seghal, New York Times
