"A surging, superb book that closely examines the anatomy of southern racial prejudice and reveals some awful truths. In the process, [Wright] has given us a social document of unusual worth. . . This book is not for the squeamish. Wright's catalog of lynching, police brutality, meanness, and emotion running riot in a small town is calculated to disturb even the most callous. This story, balanced by Wright's compassion for his people, is an experience of almost nightmarish quality." --Roi Ottley, Chicago Sunday Tribune
