Reviews

  • A powerful, wholly unsentimental novel about family love, loss, belonging and belief that is more focused but just as daring as its predecessor, and to my mind even more successful

    Wall Street Journal
  • A book of blazing brilliance . . . A double helix of wisdom and rage twists through the quiet lines of this novel. Yaa Gyasi is one of the most enlightening novelists writing today

    Washington Post
  • I would say that TRANSCENDENT KINGDOM is a novel for our time (and it is) but it is so much more than that. It is a novel for all times. The splendor and heart and insight and brilliance contained in the pages holds up a light the rest of us can follow

    Ann Patchett
  • Absolutely transcendent. A gorgeously woven narrative about a woman trying to survive the grief of a brother lost to addiction and a mother trapped in depression while pursuing her ambitions. Not a word or idea out of place. Completely different from Homegoing. THE RANGE. I am quite angry this is so good

    Roxane Gay
  • With deft agility and undeniable artistry, Gyasi's latest is an eloquent examination of resilient survival

    Booklist
  • Meticulous, psychologically complex ... At once a vivid evocation of the immigrant experience and a sharp delineation of an individual's inner struggle, the novel brilliantly succeeds on both counts

    Publishers Weekly, starred review
  • Gyasi's second novel, Transcendent Kingdom, is a very different book, and, I think, a better one - contemporary, personal, acutely focused on a single family, and intensely felt

    New Yorker
  • The range Gyasi displays in just two books is staggering

    USA Today
  • Remarkable, a devastating account of America . . . explores horror without ever losing sight of humanity or hope

    Sunday Times on 'Homegoing'
  • A stirringly gifted writer. It's impossible not to admire the ambition and scope of Homegoing

    New York Times
