"TRULY ENGAGING…Campbell has a storyteller’s ear for dialogue and the visual sense of painting a picture and a place….There’s a steam that keeps the story moving as the characters, and later their children, wrestle through racial, personal and cultural crisis."
—Los Angeles Times Book Review
"YOUR BLUES AIN’T LIKE MINE is rich, lush fiction set in rural Mississippi beginning in the mid-’50s. It is also a haunting reality flowing through Anywhere, U.S.A., in the ’90s….There’s love, rage and hatred, winning and losing, honor, abuse; in other words, humanity….Campbell now deserves recognition as the best of storytellers. Her writing sings."
—The Indianapolis News
—The Seattle Times
"A COMPELLING NARRATIVE…Campbell is a master when it comes to telling a story."
YOUR BLUES AIN’T LIKE MINE won the NAACP Image Award for Best Literary Work of Fiction
