Reviews

Praise for Michael Sokolove

"Sokolove is a natural literary stylist with the gifts of a social historian."--"The New York Times"

"A terrific read, made to work by Sokolove's insightful reporting and deft writing . . . a sad, powerful, thoughtful, totally engrossing work."--"Chicago Tribune"

"A narrative defined by its compassionate, clear-eyed tone." --"Entertainment Weekly"

"A first-class work of sound reporting."--Roger Angell, "The New Yorker"
Praise for "Drama High"

"An extraordinary book...a viscerally real reminder of the pain and excitement of being a teenager, an honest and compassionate discussion of class in America, a wondrous, lightning-in-a-bottle book."--Curtis Sittenfeld, author of "Prep"

"Part "Glee", part "Hoop Dreams", "Drama High" is a bravura performance, the true story of that teacher we all remember or wish we did, the one who pushes us to be better than we thought possible. You'll clap and cry at the end. Sokolove deserves a standing ovation."--Elizabeth Weil, author of "No Cheating, No Dying"

"What makes a great teacher--the kind who truly transforms lives? The answer lies between these covers, in Michael Sokolove's intimate portrait. This book ripples with emotion, with humor, with heart. Like a great performance, "Drama High "won't just move you. It will inspire you."--Jonathan Mahler, author of "Ladies and Gentleman, the Bronx Is Burning"

Praise for "Drama High"
"A good reporter can make almost any story interesting. A great reporter makes it blossom. With the kind of diligent, thorough and imaginative reporting not seen enough these days, Sokolove not only brings a teacher, his students and their community to life, he also opens the story to larger matters."--"The Washington Post"
"Poignant...Captivating...[Sokolove] shines a heartening light on how one of those passionate heros devoted himself...to educating, rather than training, young people."--"The New York Times Book Review"
"Imagine if all of "Glee" sustained the level of quality and heart that characterized the story lines between Kurt and his dad, and you'll get a closer approximation of what "Drama High" achieves...It immediately becomes required reading: for young people who can learn more about the challenge and rewards of theatre, for parents who may well need the same background, for anyone who doubts the value of theatre as an educational and character-building activity not only for those who would become professionals, for those who want to spark reveries of their own experiences in high school drama."--"The Huffington Post"
