Reviews

"A saga about the survival of spirituality and creativity in the face of generations of racism, dispossession, and familial dysfunction...Fantastic, terrible and beautiful." -- Rebecca Steinitz - Boston Globe
"Stirring...In her harrowing and ultimately hopeful story, Harjo allows the reader to know her intimately, and we are enriched by her honesty." -- Ms.
"A must-read for her fans and a fascinating door into her world for those new to her work." -- Elizabeth Wilkinson - Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Gritty and mystical...Reads like a sacred prayer." -- San Francisco Chronicle
"Exquisite...A must-read for anyone who appreciates the healing power of literature." -- Southwest
"Blunt, moving...[Affirms and acclaims] the artistic impulse." -- Smithsonian
"Dances into hard truth. [Harjo's] fine crafting of words and deft braiding of mythic visions throughout the text almost-almost-draw you past the truth of her personal story. That story is harsh and scary, mystical and loving, and, ultimately, triumphant and healing." -- Indian Country
"Joy Harjo has always been able to see with more than her eyes. Her writing is a testament to this gift. Her memoir honors her own journey as well as those who fell along the wayside. Her hero's journey is a gift for all those struggling to make their way." -- Sandra Cisneros
"Joy Harjo is a giant-hearted, gorgeous, and glorious gift to the world. Her belief in art, in spirit, is so powerful, it can't help but spill over to us-lucky readers. Wildly passionate and honest as a hound, Crazy Brave invites us into a whole new way of seeing-deeper, less cluttered, and vastly more courageous than our own. It's a book for people who want to re-fall in love with the world." -- Pam Houston
