Staff Reviews


What a debut! Stories From the Tenants Downstairs is one of the most well executed collection of intertwining short stories I've read. When a rent increase goes into effect, many tenants struggle to make rent and keep the faith as they watch their neighbors get evicted one by one. The most impressive thing Fofana has done, in my opinion, is write every story in the voice of its main character. No two stories could blend together despite the relationships and mentions of characters highlighted in other stores. These stories seem to be Fofana telling us he can successfully write as anyone he chooses.

“From the first sentence, we are immersed in the cadence of Harlem. We are one of the tenants struggling with autonomy and groping for success. These engaging stories offer insight into the lives and aspirations of inner-city people.”
