“Brandon Harris’s first book is a wide-ranging meditation on race, poverty, bohemia, and film history. It’s the introduction to American letters of a brilliant, funny, antic voice—and a rebuke, in a form newly discovered, to the people James Baldwin once called our ‘morally bankrupt and desperately dishonest countrymen.’”
“Fascinating . . . This memoir provides hard-won insights into the divided loyalties of middle-class African Americans, and a convincing description of a 21st-century New York City where only the rich can thrive.”
“A thought-provoking examination of the millennial black experience in the first decade of the 21st century.”
“There were passages that made me burst out laughing, paragraphs that made me want to scream, and pages that made me want to take Brandon by the collar and simply shake him to his senses. Clever and powerful. Everybody interested in discovering how millennials are living will find Making Rent in Bed-Stuy fascinating.”
