Writing in MELUS, a critical journal of multi-ethnic literature, Professor Diptiranjan Pattanaik says that Grooms’s work demonstrates “the insider’s profound knowledge of the history and struggles of African Americans, while consistently managing to circumscribe his breadth of understanding with a tender story-telling art.”
