November 24 @ 12:30 pm EST
Monique Truong’s novel The Sweetest Fruits is an ingenious retelling of the many lives of Greek-Irish globetrotting writer Lafcadio Hearn, through the voices of the women who knew him best. Curdella Forbes’s novel, A Tall History of Sugar, tells the story of Moshe Fisher, a Jamaican man who was “born without skin,” so that no one can tell to which race he belongs. A servant and former slave is accused of murdering her employer and his wife in The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins.
