The Midwest Book Review reviewed Richard Grayson's Summer in Brooklyn in its November Small Press Bookwatch:
What goes through the mind of someone just reaching their prime as the seventies begin? "Summer in Brooklyn: 1969-1975" is a collection of summer diary entries from critically acclaimed author Richard Grayson. A window in the mind of a writer in a time where Vietnam War was dragging on, inner chaos roared through the country in response, and so much more occurred. "Summer in Brooklyn" is a vivid picture of the era.
