“Watts writes about ordinary people leading ordinary lives with an extraordinary level of empathy and attention...The novel’s intricately plotted relationships pay off satisfyingly in its final chapters.” -New York Times Book Review

“Imagine The Great Gatsby, only set in the contemporary American South, and retold with black characters, rather than the lily-shite Long Island set.  Watts’ retelling is smart, unsettling, at times hilarious, and a wonderful update to this classic American novel.” -Nylon Magazine
