Rivers Solomon has blown me away yet again. I usually avoid horror and mystery- I had to read Sorrowland very slowly, supplementing it with lots of middle grade books to keep me from descending into the darkness and horror the book evokes. And I adored it. Rivers Solomon's writing is grounded, clear, audacious and unabashed. Pick this book up if a monstrous Black and queer survival story with no small share of fighting back sounds intriguing. -Miriasha, Burlington/Essex
