Unlike anything I have ever read,
This review is from: Long Division (Paperback)
I won this book early in the goodreads giveaway. I still do not know what to say. I read Kiese's essays but nothing could have prepared me for this book. The writing is pitchperfect. I have never seen any young writer do what he is doing here. I'm sure it's not for everyone but once you figure out what he is doing with time and authorship, I think you will agree that this book could be the modern classic a number of us readers of African American fiction have been waiting for. This is the first novel that I have finished and looked forward to giving to my daughter.
