I don't like short story fiction because I like to be immersed for 600 pages, but I loved these five stories so much. The first novella has already been optioned by Netflix for a film. This is Jacelyn Nicole Johnson's debut novel. She's 50 years old and that's a good reminder that it's never too late.
A young woman descended from Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings driven from her neighborhood by a white militia. A university professor studying racism by conducting a secret social experiment on his own son. A single mother desperate to buy her first home even as the world hurtles toward catastrophe. Each fighting to survive in America.
