tor'cha by Dr. Todd Craig

PRAISE FOR tor’cha:

”tor’cha is the riveting account of the spiritual odyssey of urban youth. The powerful journey draws the reader into complex relationships of love, hate and compromise. In the process of shaping his characters, Craig raises pivotal questions concerning the silent war that rages in inner cities across the nation. Read this book and ponder the answers that can lead us to hope.”  — Dr. Bessie W. Blake, Author of “Speak to the Mountain” (USA Book News 2007 Best Book Award), "God's Bad Boy", and "Love Lifted Me".

“Todd Craig's writing can hold more weight than the mighty 59th St. Bridge during rush hour. He is a combo of Zora Neale Hurston and Bonz Malone. A classic New York slice of pizza, hold the swine . . .” — Bobbito Garcia, DJ and Author "Where'd You Get Those? New York City's Sneaker Culture: 1960-1987" and "AIM HIGH, LITTLE GIANT, AIM HIGH!"

“Todd Craig takes readers deep into the darkness in order to show us the light. Written in a street-smart style, this book should be required reading...” — Geoffrey Canada, Board President of Harlem Children’s Zone and Author "Fist Stick Knife Gun: A Personal History of Violence"
