Reviews & endorsements

"Considered separately, the essays in this book are significant works of criticism examining a broad range of the issues implicated in African American literary history. Viewed as a whole, they engage in the kind of open reading 'companion' editor Maryemma Graham cautions is our best approach to the African American novel-one that does not flinch at the vastness of the project." North Dakota Quarterly, Lisa Trochmann, University of Minnesota
