Editorial reviews (3 reviews)


Pleasantville seems ripped from the headlines amid a very public discussion of race, criminal justice, and the slow demise of the American dream, but it would be a quality book regardless.

This is a cinematic, panoramic view of African-American life, but it is also a sharp, tender account of Jay’s inner struggle.

Locke does a fabulous job of weaving these aspects into the story while still maintaining a pacing and momentum that any suspense fan can appreciate.
