Reviews

Somehow Casey Gerald has pulled off the most urgently political, most deeply personal, and most engagingly spiritual statement of our time by just looking outside his window and inside himself. Extraordinary -- Marlon James
Casey Gerald's book is urgent, mesmeric, soaring, desperately serious, wounded and, at times, slyly, brilliantly comic. The world he creates is vivid, the invocation of the personal and the political sharp and knowing. The style is flawless, the pace perfectly judged. Electrifying -- Colm Toibin
Magnificent... at turns exuberant, humorous, unsentimental, imaginative, keen. ... The locus of the book is [Gerald's] extraordinary journey. ... Along the way, he learns plenty about his country, the elites who run it and the underclass subject to their rule. He often relays his insight with indelible aphorism. ...His life, and this memoir, serve as proof of his prodigious talents, of the truth that, for the gifted like him, struggles ... can yield something miraculous. * New York Times Book Review *
A memoir of a religious, gay black man coming to terms with his own nuanced achievement of the American dream in the new millennium ... hardly a by-the-numbers memoir, this is a powerful book marked by the author's refreshingly complicated and insightful storytelling * Kirkus *
Undeniably inspirational...a literary and often dark look at the effects the national virtue of self-reliance can have on the people who live according to it, with particularly moving passages about the atmosphere of stress, pain, and racial divides on college campuses * Vanity Fair *
Searing . . . rendered in vivid, painful, and regularly funny reminiscence. But more than anything else, this bildungsroman is a wry document of American class strata. * O, The Oprah Magazine *
