The Huffington Post published a beautiful profile of CCLA author Jeffery Renard Allen on April 1st, calling him “the most acclaimed modern American author in the world not named Ta Nehisi Coates, Paul Beatty or Colson Whitehead,” and offering stunning praise of his work: “The pixelated realism in his work is stark. He looks truth dead in the eye and does not look away, going deeper and deeper, penetrating layers of superficiality, exploding toxic myths and allowing organic cleansing. His is marrow work. It is his speciality. Because of its unbridled creativity and mission, it is elegant.”
