Advance Praise for The Virgin of Flames:
"Chris Abani reveals Los Angeles as we have never seen it before—magical and crumbling, a place of deserted rooftop oases and intersections where new identities are bought and sold.  He has rewritten our American story and brought the world into our streets, our most private negotiations and confessions."  -- Walter Mosley

A powerful, scary and beautiful novel. Abani is a force to be reckoned with, a world-class novelist and poet.  -- Russell Banks

Chris Abani is a force of nature. In the world of letters he is a luminous shattering talent, and The Virgin of Flames is his strangest and wildest trip yet. I don't think there's ever been a protagonist quite like Black, or an LA quite like this one.  -- Junot Diaz
