Editorial Reviews

The novels challenge everything we thought we knew about American literature, about African American culture and about the course of literary history. -Ann duCille, The Women''s Review of Books

"Add[s] both depth and detail to the legacy of [Frances Harper]." -Bob McCollough, The Boston Globe

"A major publishing event. The Harper novels-lively, idealistic and fun to read-change the shape of our literary canon forever. Foster''s introduction sizzles. If only all literary criticism could be like this!" -Jane Tompkins, author of Sensational Design and West of Everything
