“[A] searing, gorgeous, brilliant and profoundly human novel about two generations of an African American family riding the slow-mo roller coaster of addiction.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“In The Taste of Salt, Southgate writes with a minor-key melancholy that comes on softly, but lingers long after.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Southgate’s arresting, fluid prose and authentic dialogue come together in a resonating study of relationships, where selfish tendencies among the various characters are revealed, as are their feelings of regret. A fascinating story that shows how the mistakes people make affect all those around them.”—Publishers Weekly
