Press for An American Summer


Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“Kotlowitz has a ruminative, almost poetic sensisibility … (his) approach is empathetic in this a bold, unflnching depiction of an ever-lengthening crisis.”

Kirkus (Starred Review) 

“Kotlowitz offers a narrative that is as messy and complicated and heart-wrenching as life itself … A fiercely uncompromising – and unforgettable – portrait.”
