About the Author

Sidik Fofana earned an MFA from New York University. He lives with his wife and son in New York City where he is a public school teacher.


Heralds an indelible, inimitable new literary voice . . . full of humanity and humor and hope, full of insight into the plight of people too often pushed to the margins of America-the-dream . . . not only a great joy to read, it's evocative, essential art * Mitchell S. Jackson, author of Survival Math and The Residue Years *
Full of tenderness and truth . . . The voices of the residents of Banneker Terrace linger and echo long after the last page. A tremendous debut! * Deesha Philyaw, author of The Secret Lives of Church Ladies *
Every once in a while a new writer comes along and refreshes our notions of what fiction can do. Sidik Fofana is one of those rare and wonderful writers . . . nothing short of revelatory. Buy this book, and prepare to be blasted by the brilliance inside * Ben Fountain, author of Beautiful Country Burn Again *
The book I've been waiting for . . . The author knows this community and its predicaments and has assembled a cast that will break your heart but also at times put your heart back together again. Mr. Fofana has an acute ear and a perfect eye, and he doesn't rush. This is important American art * Lorrie Moore, author of Bark *
