Here is what Junot Díaz had to say about Setting the Family Free.

“A supremely moving novel by turns ferocious and tender and funny from beginning to end. Goodman’s finest book.”

       —   Junot Díaz,
              author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
              winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction
