Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hypnotic…One of the finest novels this year…[Robinson] is a gifted storyteller.” Essence
Makeda is beyond ambitious and imaginative…well written and powerful, with an ending that is equal parts tragic and romantic in nature…a breathtaking revelation, weighted with romance and lovely passionate prose.” New York Journal of Books
“Robinson is not only exploring what it means to be black. His theme of knowing the past before planning the future applies to all cultures, all people. Pick up this odyssey of family drama, history and love, and be prepared to consider your own beginnings.” Shelf Awareness
“Eloquent and erudite, Robinson’s oft-times mystical coming-of-age saga teems with rich and evocative historical insights.” Booklist
