Editorial Reviews

Review

"A powerful meditation on how one person can affect the life of another . . . One of the great strengths of Reading with Patrick is its portrayal of the risk inherent to teaching."--The Seattle Times

"Anyone interested in questions of pedagogy, racism, and incarceration in America, not to mention literary criticism, will be enthralled by this book ... It is hard to read this challenging book ... and not think, You must change your life."--James Wood, The New Yorker

"Readers witness the transformative power of their moving lessons in both literature and life, lessons that endure and deepen in jail."--Nicole Lamy, The New York Times 

"Reading with Patrick is the most affecting book you'll read all year."--The Christian Science Monitor

"Michelle Kuo's rich memoir of her literary friendship with a student in a small town in the Mississippi Delta suggests that it is perhaps more than anything a book's ability to make its reader feel valuable that keeps us reading ... The act of reading gave her students the chance to think of themselves as able; it gave space, attention and value to their interior lives ... Instead of the tidy moral, Kuo offers a much more complex and more troubling story."--Times Literary Supplement

From the Back Cover

"An absorbing, tender, and surprisingly honest examination of race and privilege in America." - Wes Moore, author of The Other Wes Moore 
 
"Every American should read Michelle Kuo's remarkable memoir, a defining story for our times and, abidingly, a testament to the power of language and of books." - Claire Messud, author of The Burning Girl and The Woman Upstairs 
 
"A reminder of how literacy changes lives. Highly recommended." - Library Journal (starred review)
 
"Reading with Patrick could be the most affecting book you'll read this year." - The Christian Science Monitor
