Slate : Blackness Visible (October 17, 2014)

Its genius resides in that capacity to make so many different versions of American life proper to itself, to instruct us in the depth and variety of our participation in a narrative of race that we recount and reinstate, even when we speak as though it weren’t there.

Kirkus Reviews : Citizen (October 10, 2014)

Frequently powerful, occasionally opaque.
