“[Umrigar’s] focus has always been on the Indian and Indian American experience, but here she crosses borders to examine tough and timely issues concerning a black family, a white family, and our children today.” (Library Journal)
“Everybody’s Son probes directly into the tender spots of race and privilege in America…With assured prose and deep insight into the human heart, Umrigar explores the moral gray zone of what parents, no matter their race, will do for love.” (Celeste Ng, author of Everything I Never Told You)
“Umrigar hits us in three places at once: the head, the heart... the gut. With clarity of vision, she takes on the story of a neglected black boy…[Anton] is a character for our times as we… try and build bridges across the racial and economic canyons that divide us.” (David Abrams, author of Fobbit and Brave Deeds)
“A potent examination of race and privilege.” (Booklist)
“…[A] powerful exploration of the crucible of privilege and the raw, hard consequence of broken trust…[A] taut, exquisitely moving love story about desire... forgiveness, and the transcendent bond between a parent and child. Umrigar is a gifted storyteller, and her fiction has a revelatory force on the page.” (Dawn Tripp, author of Georgia)
“[Anton’s] personal journey is a moving one that many fiction readers can appreciate.” (Library Journal)

“Through strong characterizations and a compassionate, compelling narrative, Thrity Umrigar explores the assumptions and complexities of identity, race and class — and the meaning of family.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)
“Be forewarned: this novel is not a beach read… It’s a book that will leave you unsettled and haunted.” (W Magazine)
“Everybody’s Son is an example of powerful and uncomplicated writing which pushes your borders and leaves you at the edge of a mountain top. The only option you have is to jump. And jump you will.” (The Free Press Journal)
