The Warmth of Other Suns is released today in both paperback and audio editions….
“The Warmth of Other Suns is epic in its reach and in its structure. Told in a voice that echoes the magic cadences of Toni Morrison or the folk wisdom of Zora Neale Hurston’s collected oral histories, Wilkerson’s book pulls not just the expanse of the migration into focus but its overall impact on politics, literature, music, sports — in the nation and the world. ... What she’s done with these oral histories is stow memory in amber. ”—Lynell George, Los Angeles Times
