Über diesen Titel

Críticas:

"Woodson's unsparing story of a girl becoming a woman recalls some of the genre's all-time greats: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Bluest Eye and especially, with its darkly poetic language, The House on Mango Street."--Sarah Begley, Time

"An engrossing novel about friendship, race, the magic of place and the relentlessness of change."--People Magazine

"Woodson manages to remember what cannot be documented, to suggest what cannot be said. Another Brooklyn is another name for poetry."--Washington Post

"Woodson does for young black girls what short story master Alice Munroe does for poor rural ones: She imbues their everyday lives with significance."--Elle

"In Jacqueline Woodson's soaring choral poem of a novel...four young friends...navigate the perils of adolescence, mean streets, and haunted memory in 1970s Brooklyn, all while dreaming of escape."--Vanity Fair

"Another Brooklyn joins the tradition of studying female friendships and the families we create when our own isn't enough, like that of Toni Morrison's Sula, Tayari Jones' Silver Sparrow and Zami: A New Spelling of My Name by Audre Lorde. Woodson uses her expertise at portraying the lives of children to explore the power of memory, death and friendship.--Los Angeles Times Book Review

..".it is the personal encounters that form the gorgeous center of this intense, moving novel...Structured as short vignettes, each reading more like prose poetry than traditional narrative, the novel unfolds as memory does, in burning flashes, thick with detail..."--New York Times Book Review

"With Another Brooklyn, Jacqueline Woodson has delivered a love letter to loss, girlhood, and home. It is a lyrical, haunting exploration of family, memory, and other ties that bind us to one another and the world."--Boston Globe

"Woodson writes lyrically about what it means to be a girl in America, and what it means to be black in America. Each sentence is taut with potential energy, but the story never bursts into tragic flames; it stays strong and subtle throughout."--Huffington Post

"Gorgeously written and moving, Another Brooklyn is an examination of the complexities of youth and adolescence, loss, friendship, family, race, and religion."--Jarry Lee, Buzzfeed
