“Anyone who spies William J. Maxwell’s latest book is sure to have her or his eyes pop. F.B. Eyes is a fascinating study of the FBI’s decades-long surveillance program targeting the who’s who of the African American cultural scene. What we read as art, Hoover’s G-Men coded as threats. In poring over black writers’ output across the long arc of the civil rights struggle, the FBI’s ‘ghostreaders,’ as diabolical as they were paranoid, added layers of weight to–and in some cases informed–the African American literary canon, which Maxwell reveals in an irresistible narrative steeped in investigative research.”
