"I am tempted to describe Petry as a magician for the many ways that The Street amazes, but this description cheapens her talent. A magician’s tricks can all be unmasked if a person looks behind the curtain or probes the mysterious chest until she finally discovers the false bottom. Petry is a gifted artist. There are no stunts here or sleight of hand. This novel, like real life, is rife with seeming contradictions and layered with complex truths. And like the human experience this book is riddled with pain, but somehow powered by hope." --Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage
