Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

K'wan (Section 8) continues the stories of characters Animal, Gucci, Don B. and his Big Dawg crew, while introducing some new ones, who all inhabit the complicated and interconnected world of the "hood." Animal is now a big-time hip-hop star who's returning to New York from Texas on music-related business and to avenge the deaths of his posse. Malika gave up a middle-class life when she became pregnant by Suede, who after his release from prison betrayed her and denied their son, Solomon. K'wan offers fans more of what they expect--double-crossing, violence, sex, and drama involving the characters they have come to love or hate. For first-time readers, the back­stories from previous novels can get confusing, while narrative threads suddenly drop away without resolution. The novel ends much like others in the series, begging for a sequel, but regardless, K'wan excels at dialogue, and his densely packed universe has every element of successful street drama.

 Praise for K'wan

“Quick and entertaining, K'wan's latest captures a small slice of modern urban life with a great degree of credibility and finds in Animal his most conflicted, memorable, and likable character yet.”---Publisher’s Weekly on Section 8

“K’wan once again comes through with a gritty and violent yarn that raises the street-lit bar.”---Library Journal on Section 8

“A street-lit version of The Godfather . . . Hoodlum does what literature should do. It shows us that writing really matters.”---Library Journal on Hoodlum

“The big draw here is the electric prose, which is imbued with profane, comic lyricism.”---Publishers Weekly on Hood Rat

“One of hip-hop fiction’s hottest authors . . . fans will appreciate many of the qualities that make K’wan a writer to check for: gritty settings, memorable dialogue, and authentic action.”---KING magazine on Street Dreams
