A rhapsodic and provocative collection of essays on race, class, sexuality and identity in America * Financial Times *
Als has a serious claim to be regarded as the next James Baldwin * Observer *
Effortless, fearless and honest * New York Times *
The first time you read Hilton Als, it's a revelation ... you wonder where this guy has been all your life ... He is both a startlingly insightful intellectual and a friendly, open and generous-spirited companion. It is the authenticity of his voice which makes him so compelling. That and the sheer dazzling brilliance of his writing, visceral and poetic, big-hearted, hot-headed and fierce' * Big Issue *
Enlightening... a book you should read now * VICE *
The variations he plays on the themes of identity, intimacy and race achieve a fugue-like complexity and power * Washington Post *
Beautiful and deeply intelligent * New Statesman *
A stunning analysis of contemporary culture ... undoubtedly one of the most important books of our times * DAZED *
Pioneering ... a mosaic of thoughts and observations, taking in the landscape of a New York ravaged by AIDS and his private grief for his lost lover, imagining silent film star Louise Brookes' drawling inner life, and examining his own complicated relationship with his sexuality and blackness * AnOther Magazine *
Magnificent * Los Angeles Times *
Stunning * Kirkus Reviews *
Exhilarating ... Audacious * San Francisco Chronicle *
Brilliant * Boston Globe *

I defy you to read this book and come away with a mind unchanged -- John Jeremiah Sullivan
