Acerca de


TUMBLING is an accomplished novel, with sharply drawn characters, exuberant prose, plenty of period detail and a wise, forgiving outlook on family life. --Los Angeles Times Book Review"

McKinney-Whetstone weaves an intricate tapestry of love, pain and memory. . . . Philly is as much a character as the women. . . . Neena s dire straits are nicely handled and provide a pretty sharp hook. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

[A] poignant, multigenerational story. . . . An achingly tender portrait of familial love and pain. --Booklist"

A compelling story. . . . In evocative prose, she re-creates the world of 1940s and 1950s Philadelphia with passionate emotion in a moving novel of love, loss, redemption, and healing. --Ebony"

Offers up both wrenching and sweet truths that feel familiar to any reader, in a series of uncloying, unpredictable plotlines. The result is a book that feels honest, filled with people you want to keep reading about. --Philadelphia Magazine"

Even the air is palpable in TUMBLING. . . . The story moves forth on the power of Ms. Mckinney-Whetstone s characters. Ms. McKinney-Whetstone captures the formidable struggle to protect both a community and a family. --The New York Times Book Review"

[A] beautifully written tale [and] a lyrical read. --USA Today"

[A] remarkable first novel. . . . The story probes beneath its residents lives to tell a powerful tale of damage and healing. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

A bouncy, moody, musical debut by an author who, like a good blues singer, is strong on style and interpretation. . . . A gifted prose writer with a tremendous sense of place. --Kirkus Reviews"

Vibrant . Completely engaging . A unique blend of poetic language and graphic depictions of the injustices suffered by African Americans in the post-Civil War period. --Booklist (starred review)"
