"A powerful, scary and beautiful novel. Abani is a force to be reckoned with, a world-class novelist and poet." - Russell Banks

"Chris Abani is a force of nature. In the world of letters he is a luminous shattering talent, and The Virgin of Flames is his strangest and wildest trip yet. I don't think there's ever been a protagonist quite like Black, or an LA quite like this one." - Junot Díaz

He has rewritten our American story and brought the world into our streets, our most private negotiations and confessions." - Walter Mosley
