In the 12/20 issue of the Washington Post, Luis Urrea raves about Timothy Black’s When a Heart Turns Rock Solid, calling it “eye-opening. These mean streets could be Piri Thomas’s or Martin Scorsese’s . . . We hear voices we don’t normally hear, and the book is filled with the poetry of the street. . . . These are the stories of the new America.” Now on sale from Pantheon Books, When a Heart Turns Rock solid joins two other Pantheon titles—Richard Holmes’s The Age of Wonder and Michael Sragow’s Victor Fleming—on Washington Post’s list of the Best Books of the Year.
