Just got a very thoughtful and flattering review from Booklist magazine (behind a paywall):

"Now Baram presents the first complete biography of this intense, haunted, outspoken yet elusive trailblazer, this 'revolutionary prophet, griot, and stand-up comic'... Baram’s exacting, intimate, and sensitive portrait preserves and honors Scott-Heron’s unique genius and essential legacy."
