RaveThe Minneapolis Star TribuneIndeed, her description of the perpetual war that blacks and now Latinos have fought to get and keep the right to vote is impeccably researched, deftly written and, sadly, prescient. What made me want to holler were the reams of evidence Anderson presents to prove an irrefutable point: Since Reconstruction, conservative whites have tried to strip minorities of their constitutionally guaranteed right to vote, by any means necessary. ... One Person, No Vote is slim...but it punches above its weight, like a lecture from a professor with superb command of language. Anderson’s storytelling shines ... the book reminded me of the classic anti-establishment expression: If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.
Issac J. Bailey
PositiveMinneapolis Star TribuneTo say there’s a lot going on here is an understatement. Bailey has a relatable, multifaceted story to tell ... His comprehensive approach, however, distracts from a powerful thesis — what happens when a family’s golden child does a horrible thing — and disrupts the flow of Bailey’s improbable journey from a single-wide trailer to award-winning newspaper columnist ... he walks by, skimps on or contradicts other parts of what could be an engaging story ... Ultimately, My Brother Moochie is interesting, but it reads more like a collection of Bailey’s columns than a fluid autobiography.
