About the Book

"A comically dark coming-of-age story about growing up on the South Side of Chicago, but it's also social commentary at its finest, woven seamlessly into the work...Bump's meditation on belonging and not belonging, where or with whom, how love is a way home no matter where you are, is handled so beautifully that you don't know he's hypnotized you until he's done." -- Tommy Orange, The New York Times Book Review

Percolating with fierceness and originality, attuned to the ironies inherent in our twenty-first-century landscape, EVERYWHERE YOU DON'T BELONG marks the arrival of a brilliant young talent.
