Praise
"Randall moves masterfully between past and present....[and] demonstrates, with delicious imagery and a sense of racial irony, a love for history's forgotten and overlooked." (starred review)
"Part detective story, part love story, REBEL YELL is a novel deeply suffused with nostalgia and mourning.....[It] offers a rich journey through the world of distinguished graduates of Southern black colleges, black fraternities and sororities, Jack and Jill societies, Ivy League institutions and summer vacations at Martha's Vineyard -- the world, in short, of a black elite whose lives are only dimly glimpsed by many Americans."
From the Publisher
Annotation What in the world happened to Abel Jones Jr.? The son of a celebrated black civil-rights lawyer he was supposed to grow up to embody the ideals of 1960s progressivism. Instead, he became a neo-conservative warmonger, abandoned his black wife for a white woman, and then keeled over dead at a "Rebel Yell" Confederate-themed dinner. Hope Jones Blackshear, his first wife, left him to protect their son from his increasingly violence, but in the aftermath of his undignified death, she thinks back fondly to their early idealistic romance. A mutual friend hints to Hope that Jones might have been affiliated with the CIA, and so Hope travels to Rome to understand the secrets at the heart of her ex-husband's conflicted soul. Alice Randall (THE WIND DONE GONE) writes with an appealing blend of passion, cynicism, and a sharp sense of humor. REBEL YELL is a political mystery, a domestic tragedy, and cultural critique, all wrapped up in a ripping-good read.
