    Book Description:

    "Madigan somehow manages to tell the story of what happened with grace, purity and haunting starkness." —Buzz Bissinger

    "A powerful book, a harrowing case study made all the more so by Madigan’s skillful, clear-eyed telling of it." —Adam Nossiter, The New York Times Book Review

    A sobering, frightening account of what happens when that foul beast, racism, breaks its fragile leash.—Kirkus, starred review

    Madigan’s skill at description, dialogue and pacing keeps the reader’s interest at peak levels.—Publishers Weekly

    Madigan provides a riveting account of one of the most shameful episodes in the troubled history of race relations in the U.S. This cultural and sociological dissection of a twentieth-century tragedy makes difficult but compelling reading.—Booklist

    The story of Greenwood is written in such chilling detail and clarity that one can almost smell the smoke and hear the cries. This is historical reporting at its best.—Larry Cox, Arizona Daily Star

    The Burning is a bold and worthwhile beginning. With its richness of horrifying detail, the book compels our attention, restoring the hateful episode’s ghastly but necessary claim on the public conscience.—Morning Star-Telegram

    Mr. Madigan spins a moving story…a compelling work that brings its characters to life.—Dallas Morning News
