Review

Stephanie Powell Watts s inspired reimagining of the novel long regarded as the American masterwork of the twentieth century gives soul, body, and voice to those left out of Scott Fitzgerald s vision of the American dream... bold, brilliant, and timely. It is just what contemporary American fiction needs. --Sigrid Nunez, author of The Last of Her Kind and Sempre Susan"

A grand debut novel full of characters who come into a reader s mind and heart and never leave. Stephanie Powell Watts is a writer of wondrous skill, imagination and sensitivity, and No One Is Coming to Save Us is a beautiful testament to that. --Edward P. Jones"

Rich with wry and poignant observations on human nature, family, and black experience in America. A powerful-and, in today s world, necessary -perspective on the American dream and the possibility of beginning again. --Celeste Ng, author of Everything I Never Told You"

There is wisdom, vital and profound, on every single page of this novel. It s a story about home -- what it means to leave and whether you can return, and how it is people in the end who are its beating heart. Absolutely luminous. --Cristina Henr?quez, author of The Book of Unknown Americans"

The Great Gatsby is revived in an accomplished debut novel...Watts spins a compelling tale of obsessive love and dashed dreams...Watts gently told story, like Fitzgerald s, is only superficially about money but more acutely about the urgent, inexplicable needs that shape a life. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

"There is wisdom, vital and profound, on every single page of this novel. It's a story about home -- what it means to leave and whether you can return, and how it is people in the end who are its beating heart. Absolutely luminous."--Cristina Henr?quez, author of The Book of Unknown Americans

"Imagine The Great Gatsby, only set in the contemporary American South, and retold with black characters, rather than the lily-shite Long Island set. Watts' retelling is smart, unsettling, at times hilarious, and a wonderful update to this classic American novel."--Nylon Magazine
