Check out these early endorsements for Jeff Allen’s Song of the Shank, to be published by Graywolf in June!
“Jeffery Renard Allen works language to make himself smarter, readers smarter, the language smarter.”—John Edgar Wideman
“Talent and brilliance are not enough. Writing a novel like this is the equivalent of building a three story building. Single handedly. Jeffery Renard Allen scores highly with this novel about the Michael Jackson of the nineteenth century, the savant, Blind Tom.”—Ishmael Reed
