Reviews

I need a book like this to remember what is possible If you want to know why the world is this way, try this book for starters * Naomi Alderman, author of The Power * Remarkable, a devastating account of America . . . explores horror without ever losing sight of humanity or hope * Sunday Times on 'Homegoing' * A stirringly gifted writer. It's impossible not to admire the ambition and scope of Homegoing * New York Times * Meticulous, psychologically complex ... At once a vivid evocation of the immigrant experience and a sharp delineation of an individual's inner struggle, the novel brilliantly succeeds on both counts * Publishers Weekly, starred review * With deft agility and undeniable artistry, Gyasi's latest is an eloquent examination of resilient survival * Booklist * A book of blazing brilliance . . . A double helix of wisdom and rage twists through the quiet lines of this novel. Yaa Gyasi is one of the most enlightening novelists writing today * Washington Post * Absolutely transcendent. A gorgeously woven narrative about a woman trying to survive the grief of a brother lost to addiction and a mother trapped in depression while pursuing her ambitions. Not a word or idea out of place. Completely different from Homegoing. THE RANGE. I am quite angry this is so good * Roxane Gay * I would say that TRANSCENDENT KINGDOM is a novel for our time (and it is) but it is so much more than that. It is a novel for all times. The splendor and heart and insight and brilliance contained in the pages holds up a light the rest of us can follow * Ann Patchett *


I need a book like this to remember what is possible If you want to know why the world is this way, try this book for starters * Naomi Alderman, author of The Power * One hell of a book... I recommend Homegoing without reservation * Roxane Gay * Remarkable, a devastating account of America . . . explores horror without ever losing sight of humanity or hope * Sunday Times on 'Homegoing' * A stirringly gifted writer. It's impossible not to admire the ambition and scope of Homegoing * New York Times *
