“The world has lost yet another powerful, unheralded novelist and storyteller,” Al Young, her friend and fellow writer, memorialized the following month. “Kristin Hunter Lattany’s stories, situations, and characters were almost always bold and unpredictable. She was wry and often hilarious. Whether she was writing for grown folks or children, Kristin Hunter always gave full attention to subtle worlds within worlds and psyches within psyches. Her books are a joy.”
