Reviews

The Mothers is a beautifully written, sad and lingering book - an impressive debut for such a young writer - Guardian [A]n engaging and assured debut novel of depth, and introspective power. It succeeds as a brilliant study of a modern black woman, and as a lyrical and majestic portrait of her place in society Brit Bennett is so bracingly talented on the page. . .[The Mothers is] astute and absorbing and urgent - Jezebel A quite beautiful book: shimmering with intelligence; fully alive to both the joyful and the difficult part of love; illuminating on motherhood - Times Literary Supplement Luminous . . . engrossing and poignant, this is one not to miss - People With echoes of James Baldwin's Go Tell It on the Mountain, The Mothers is not your typical coming-of-age novel: It begins with Nadia's abortion, an experience often absent from our culture's stories, and goes on to look at how women step in to nurture - and sometimes betray - one another - Vogue Brit Bennett's debut novel The Mothers has stayed with me since I first read it, the words and the intimacy of the prose seeping into my pores . . . There is a real tenderness to how Bennett tells this story and to how she writes these characters who are so richly fleshed out, so unbearably human. - Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist
