Loved by our collective!

A mixed race family in the American south. A weekend road trip to pick up a father from prison, drawn into close focus. A magical realist feel rooted in voodoo.

Simple in plot but complex in themes and emotions, this book tackles topics ranging from addiction, abusive parents, what happens after death, the prison complex, and most notably, the heavyness and emotion of racism that weigh on so many, and the history of slavery in the United States, and how it never went away. The humanity, and sorrow of this book has vividly stuck with me since I read it last year.
