“Nobody says the words anymore, but somehow the violence still remains.”
Brendan Kiely, All American Boys

“The problem is that you don't always get to write your own story. You get written into some stories, and if ask why, there isn't an answer. You don't have any control, because the forces at work are too large to confront, and sometimes too large even to understand.”
Brendan Kiely, The Gospel of Winter

“Fear. Like the way Ma told me to cross the street to the other side of the sidewalk if I was walking home alone and I saw a group of guys walking toward me. Guys. That wasn't the word she used. Thugs. Fear of thugs. Just like what some people were saying on the news. Rashad looked like a thug.”
Brendan Kiely, All American Boys
