Reviews

Praise for Red at the Bone

"Profoundly moving ... With its abiding interest in the miracle of everyday love, Red at the Bone is a proclamation." --The New York Times Book Review

"A treasure awaits readers who encounter Red at the Bone....A universal American tale of striving, failing, then trying again." --Time

"Sublime....This short novel contains immense empathy for each member of its wide ensemble. Thus, as Woodson covers nearly a century, from the 1921 Tulsa race massacre to 9/11, her grasp of history's weight on individuals -- and definitive feel for borough life, past and present -- proves to be as emotionally transfixing as ever." --Entertainment Weekly

"Red at the Bone is a narrative steeped in truth...Thank you, Ms. Woodson, for leading me home." --The Washington Post

"Vast emotional depth, rich historical understanding and revelatory pacing ... Woodson draws the profound magic out of the ordinary. She is unmatched in her ability to evoke emotion."--The San Francisco Chronicle

"A remarkable, intergenerational harmony of voices. At its center is hope for both individual and hereditary survival."--USA Today

"Gorgeous, moving...A story of love--romantic and familial--and alienation, grief and triumph, disaster and survival." --Nylon

"Red at the Bone breaks down the ways in which parenthood changes people for both better and worse and what it means to find your true identity." --Parade "Slender miracle of a novel [that] performs a magic trick with time....Woodson skips back and forth between the decades so deftly that it feels like it all happens in a heartbeat." --Family Circle
