Reviews

McBride's intricately constructed and impressive second novel . . . he nails the horrors of slavery as well as he does the power of hope and redemption
<i>Publisher's Weekly</i> starred review
In Denwood's grim, fatalistic pursuit of his destiny, McBride has fashioned a myth of retribution and sacrifice that recalls both William Faulkner's sagas of blighted generations and Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon. Explosively dramatic.
<i>Kirkus</i> starred review
Gripping . . . One often risks turning the pages so fast as to miss some of the richness and subtlety of the writing.
<i>New York Times</i>
By turns tender and savage, McBride's novel is a harsh commentary on the inequalities in society both past and present
