Epic and poetic...this is just a gorgeous and mesmerising book. I could hardly believe it's a debut - it's written so assuredly, with such strength. I really, really loved it and recommended it at once to all my female friends.

What the Critics are Saying

Written with the grace of a poet, Memphis is as hopeful as it is heartbreaking. I fell in love with this family, from Joan's fierce heart to her grandmother Hazel's determined resilience. Tara Stringfellow will be an author to watch for years to come . . . A stellar debut.

Jacqueline Woodson, bestselling author of Red at the Bone

In luminous, lyrical prose, Tara Stringfellow sings the song of the North women - and the North men - with wisdom, humor, and deep humanity. Memphis is an American epic, a tribute to life in all of its sorrow and joyful resilience.

Chloe Benjamin, bestselling author of The Immortalists.

An evocative, compelling tale . . . Tara M Stringfellow assembles an endearing and unforgettable cast of characters who find strength in vulnerability, safety in art, and liberation in telling the truth. This is a shining, splendid testimony in the vein of Gloria Naylor, Delores Phillips, Ayana Mathis, and Honoree Jeffers.

Robert Jones, Jr., New York Times bestselling author of The Prophets
