“There’s a new player stepping into the street-lit spotlight, and he’s one to watch. . . . Urban libraries have to get Got.”—Library Journal, on D’s debut novel Got (starred review)

It’s less than six months after the events of D’s first novel, Got, and our nameless narrator has vanished off the Brooklyn grid, only to end up in Atlanta. Yet trouble is shadowing him, and he is forced to make a life-or-death decision.

Writing since the age of 8, D has never held a legitimate job in his life. His words, however, have appeared in VIBE and other urban publications. An Atlanta native, he currently lives in an ungentrified neighborhood near you.

Incredible book. It really explodes through you. Like Capote or Nabakov I didn't even realize that I was reading while going through the story.
