“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
