THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER FROM A NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNING AUTHOR A TIME MAGAZINE TOP 10 NOVEL OF 2016 | SHORTLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR FICTION 2016 FROM THE WINNER OF THE ASTRID LINDGREN MEMORIAL AWARD 2018 They used to be inseparable. They used to be young, brave and brilliant amazingly beautiful and terrifyingly alone. August, Sylvia, Angela and Gigi shared everything: songs, secrets, fears and dreams. But 1970s Brooklyn was also a dangerous place, where grown men reached for innocent girls, where mothers disappeared and futures vanished at the turn of a street corner. Another Brooklyn is a heartbreaking and exquisitely written novel about a fleeting friendship that united four young lives, from one of our most gifted novelists.

Beautifully lyricala collage of experiences and reflections that intersect geographically, temporally and sexuallyWoodson evokes a New York of the 70s seen through the prism of young black females who are least likely to be portrayed in literature or any other art form, at the centre of it. * <i>Observer</i> * [A] rich, sensitive novel. * <i>Big Issue</i> * A beautiful coming-of-age novel, heartfelt and true. -- Erica Wagner * <i>New Statesman</i> * Jacqueline Woodson has such an original vision, such a singular voice. I loved this book. * Ann Patchett, author of State of Wonder * 'An impressionistic narrative, told in prose thats spare but always with an underlying poetry.' * <i>Sunday Herald</i> * It is the personal encounters that form the gorgeous center of this intense, moving novel. * New York Times Book Review * Fine-cadenced prose. * Wall Street Journal * Woodson manages to remember what cannot be documented, to suggest what cannot be said. Another Brooklyn is another name for poetry. * Washington Post * The novel reads like a series of prose poems. * Los Angeles Times * This book about what its like to be a girl in America should be required reading. * Huffington Post * 'This gorgeous novel is a poem. It is a love letter to black girlhood.' * Roxanne Gay, author of Bad Feminist * 'Grief and friendship are the hallmarks of this story that leap from the pages in a musical prose that is sparse, exacting, and breathtaking. A remarkable writer, Woodson illustrates the damning invisibility and unrelenting objectification of girls in this tender tale.' * Lauren Francis-Sharma * My expectations for this book were high, and still I found myself astounded. Another Brooklyn packs so much work into such a beautiful, poignant narrative. Entirely accessible, it elevates voices too often unheard. This is essential reading. * * In Jacqueline Woodsons soaring choral poem of a novelfour young friendsnavigate the perils of adolescence, mean streets and haunted memory in 1970s Brooklyn, all while dreaming of escape. * Vanity Fair * [E]ntwined coming-of-age narratives lost mothers, wounded war vets, nodding junkies, menacing streetscapes are starkly realistic, yet brim with moments of pure poetry. * Elle * 'Jacqueline Woodson is a gorgeous writerlyrical prose, really, really beautiful.' * Emma Straub, New York Times-bestselling author of The Vacationers * Another Brooklyn is another kind of book, another kind of beautiful, lyrical, hallucinatory, heartbreaking and powerful novel...This is an incredible and memorable book. * Edwidge Danticat, author of Claire of the Sea Light * Jacqueline Woodsons spare, emphatic novel about young women growing up in 1970s Bushwick brings some of our deepest silences-about danger, loss, and black girls coming of age-into powerful lyric speech. Another Brooklyn is heartbreaking and restorative, a gorgeous and generous paean to all we must leave behind on the path to becoming ourselves. * Tracy K. Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Life on Mars and Ordinary Light * In this elegant and moving novel, Jacqueline Woodson explores the beauty and burden of growing up girl in 1970s Brooklyn through the lens of one unforgettable narrator. The guarded hopes and whispered fears that August and her girlfriends share left me thinking about the limits and rewards of friendship well after the novels end. Full of moments of grief, grace, and wonder, Another Brooklyn proves that Jacqueline Woodson is a master storyteller. * Angela Flournoy, author of The Turner House, a finalist for the National Book Award * Jacqueline Woodsons Another Brooklyn is a wonder. With a poets soul and a poets eye for image and ear for lyrical language, Woodson delive
