“A Visitation of Spirits marks the debut of a very gifted writer. Randall Kenan speaks eloquently and with
a great deal of courage about personal and communal strife within the black community. But above all,
he speaks in the voice of the future that is tinged with bittersweet love.” – Gloria Naylor
