What the Critics are Saying

‘With its powerful poetry and courageous, unsparing vision, NIGHTCRAWLING is more than just a magnificent debut novel. It is a bid, by this prodigiously gifted young writer, to heal a broken world’

Ruth Ozeki - Author of A Tale for the Time Being

‘Leila Mottley pulls us through a body, a city and a nation equally consumed with crawling toward liberation and jogging toward inequitable failure. NIGHTCRAWLING is a scorching, incredibly readable book ... Get ready. Or don’t. It doesn’t matter. Leila Mottley is here'

Kiese Laymon - Author of Long Division

‘A literary star’
