This week in Reading…

This week, my TBR list grows courtesy of Granta’s BEST OF YOUNG AMERICAN NOVELISTS issue. Granta is quarterly literary magazine.

I am happy to say, there are 5 writers of color on the list. It breaks down like this:

Authors I have never hear of:

Author I have been meaning to get to:

And one author I would highly recommend:

Homegoing

Homegoing is inspirational debut novel about the troubled legacy of slavery in this country.  Each chapter follows the parallel paths of  two sisters and their descendants through eight generations:from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem.

Happy Reading!
