Editorial Reviews

John Chamberlain
Mr. McKay's book assails the optical, the olfactory, the kinaesthetic antennae whereby the human being takes in the world about him. In less stilted phrases, you can see, smell and feel what he writes. . . . Much of the charm of Home to Harlem is in the easy, unforced conversation of the many characters. -- Books of the Century; New York Times review, March 1928
