What Reviewers Are Saying
"In this ambitious and action-packed novel, Tananarive Due blurs genre boundaries as adroitly as her ghost walks through walls. Part love story, part ghost story, part historical fiction, part contemporary adult drama, this book is difficult to categorize -- and impossible to put down."-- Valerie Boyd, author of "Wrapped in Rainbows: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston" "[M]ore than just a ghost story is Due's sense of musical and cultural history.... Even while she brings to life Scott Joplin the man, Due makes us appreciate Scott Joplin the icon, the symbol. This understanding gives "Joplin's Ghost" its haunting power."-- "The Washington Post" "Due shows herself true to her own powerful gift."-- "Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
