Review

Praise for Five-Carat Soul:

“These brilliant miniatures display all of the rambunctious fearlessness of [McBride's] deeply empathetic imagination... Five-Carat Soul [is] a delight.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Brash, daring and defiantly original... [these] stories are bound to stay with readers for a very long time.” —NPR

“A furious joy drives these glimpses of brave lives in perilous places.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Serious fun.” —Newsday 

“McBride is such an agile writer that each voice feels authentic and somehow familiar. …These are stories of and from the soul.” —Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Unpredictable, exhilarating, and, often, hilarious. ... a wild and utterly delightful ride.” —BuzzFeed

“Poignant, imaginative, and 'literary' in the best sense of the word.” —Christian Science Monitor
