Coleman Hill (2023)
Kim Coleman Foote
"Coleman Hill feels like we are in the living room as recipients of the most vital family lore. It is top-rate storytelling from the source's tongue. Bluesy, wholesome, and soulful. Archival and fabulistic. Trysts, triumphs, and triangles that weave together in a fine piece of patchwork mirroring the story of America itself. By the end of it, Vauxhall becomes as haloed a landscape as Winesburg, Ohio. This book will beckon you with writing so profoundly heavy that it may very well just tip itself off the shelf into your hands."
