The Yellow House was published by Grove Press on August 13, 2019,[2] following the publication of an early excerpt in the New Yorker in 2015.[3] The book debuted at number 11 on the Hardcover Nonfiction best sellers list for the September 1, 2019, edition of The New York Times.[4]

Reception[edit]

In a pre-publication review, Dwight Garner of the New York Times wrote, 'This is a major book that I suspect will come to be considered among the essential memoirs of this vexing decade.'[5] In the New York Times Book Review, Angela Flournoy called it “an instantly essential text.”[6] The Star Tribune opined that Broom's book had “essentially told the story of black America in one fell swoop.”[7] Other publications to declare the book's importance included Publishers Weekly.[8] and Kirkus Reviews[9] Quoting the book itself, Kirkus Reviews opined that The Yellow House reflected the author's attempt 'to reckon with 'the psychic cost of defining oneself by the place where you are from,' adding that 'Broom's lyrical style celebrates her family bonds, but a righteous fury runs throughout the narrative at New Orleans' injustices, from the foundation on up.'[9]
