  • "In 1923, seventeen-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia for Philadelphia, where, though her first two babies die because she can't afford medicine, she keeps nine children alive with collard greens, old southern remedies and sheer love. Saddled with a husband who will bring her nothing but disappointment, she prepares her children for a world she knows will not be kind to them. Their trials are the trials upon which the history of America was forged, a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, and a force stronger than love or trouble, the determination to get by and get through. A searing portrait of an unforgettable family, an emotionally transfixing drama of human striving in the face of insurmountable adversity, and a ferocious vision of humanity at its most threadbare and elemental, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie introduces a writer of the very first order."@en

  • "Als Hattie ihre erstgeborenen Zwillinge Philadelphia und Jubilee taufte, war das Ausdruck einer großen Hoffnung. Hatte der Norden, die >>Wiege der Freiheit<<, den Schwarzen, die aus dem Süden kamen, nicht Gleichheit und Wohlstand versprochen? Und schmeckte das Leben in dem kleinen Haus an der Wayne Street nicht nach Zukunft? Hattie wird noch viele weitere Kinder bekommen, aber kaum etwas von ihren Hoffnungen wird sich erfüllen. Schmerz über Versagen und Schicksalsschläge überschattet Hatties Dasein. Es ist ein Schmerz, der sich fortschreiben wird in die nächste Generation.Doch diese Saga um eine außergewöhnliche Frau und ihre zwölf Kinder, die als Geschichte der Great Migration beginnt und sich zum Tableau mit zwölf Einzelporträts über das ganze zwanzigste Jahrhundert weitet, ist trotz Scheitern und Enttäuschung ein vitales Epos - voller Lebenskraft und verhaltener Zärtlichkeit, voller Mut und Entschlossenheit im Kampf gegen Bitterkeit."

  • "When Hattie climbed from a train, her skirt still hemmed with Georgia mud and the dream of Philadelphia sitting round as a marble in her mouth, she couldn't guess that two years later, aged seventeen, she'd be fighting to keep her baby twins alive. Saddled with a husband who will bring her nothing but disappointment, she raises nine children with grit and monumental courage, but no tenderness - she knows the world will not be kind to them and wants to prepare them as best she can. And as her sons and daughters buck against their fates, she feels every one of their triumphs and heartbreaks, for they are all bound together..."
