Praise for Good Talk:

“By turns hilarious and heart-rending, it’s exactly the book America needs at this moment.”-Celeste Ng

“A beautiful and eye-opening account of what it means to mother a brown boy and what it means to live in this country post-9/11, as a person of color, as a woman, as an artist . . . In Jacob’s brilliant hands, we are gifted with a narrative that is sometimes hysterical, always honest, and ultimately healing.” -Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award-winning author of Another Brooklyn
