Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ordinary Resurrections is a deeply moving and marvelous book. Jonathan Kozol has shared poetic and powerful stories of the poor children of Mott Haven who became a part of his life. I pray the truth and poignancy Kozol portrays here will move you to stand up for them with your votes and your voices." –Marian Wright Edelman, President, The Children's Defense Fund

“Deeply moving. This is the most personal of Kozol’s efforts.” –New York Times Book Review

“Warm and affectionate portraits…Kozol has written an eloquent love letter to a set of children…whom he has grown to know, cherish, and delight in. Deeply moving and beautifully written.” – Washington Post Book World

“I think God finds consolation in the tiny triumphs over daily oppressions by the least noticed of us, In the plainest places. So too does Jonathan Kozol, a great man who has written another great book that is all compassion, conviction, and encouragement.” –Mario Cuomo

“What a gift! A magnificent testimony to the communion of grace through the human touch.” –Fred Rogers, creator and host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood

“Kozol’s authenticity has not diminished with time, nor has his power to put a human face on Northern urban segregation.” –Library Journal

“Kozol retains his anger and contempt at the city’s neglect of his small friends, but he takes a moment here to marvel at their silliness and sorrows, gentleness and bravery.” –Booklist, starred review

“A persistent voice of conscience…His sensitive profiles highlight these kids’ resilience, quiet tenacity, eagerness to learn and high spirits, as well as the teachers’ remarkable dedication.” –Publishers Weekly

“By demonstrating the resilience of children in a meditative and measured voice, Kozol quietly intensified the indictment he has made in previous books of the inequalities that jeopardize the growth of children in our poorest neighborhoods. Ordinary Resurrections is a human work of the spirit that holds up a candle in a dark time.”—Henry Mayer, author of All on Fire

“Acutely observed, utterly unsentimental…and heartbreakingly beautiful.” –Frederick Buechner, author of The Eyes of the Heart

“What a wonderful book! I have devoured it—replete with the laughter, tears, and wise insights that all of Jonathan’s books produce…I cannot tell you how moved and touched I was.” –Rabbi David Saperstein, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism

About the Author

JONATHAN KOZOL received the National Book Award in Science, Philosophy, and Religion for Death at an Early Age, the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award for Rachel and Her Children, and the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for Amazing Grace. He lives in the village of Byfield, Massachusetts.
