"Rhodes-Pitts is one of that rare breed of writer who, on the strength of her hypnotic voice and idiosyncratic thinking, can turn ever sentence into a crooked finger, impossible to resist." Laura Miller, Salon.com

"It makes a startling, alive sound, one you cock your head at an angle to hear...Ms. Rhodes-Pitts drops us inside her wide-scanning cranium as she searches for her own version of Harlem..." Dwght GARNER, New York Times
