The Water Dancer By Ta-Nehisi Coates
Amazing new first novel by award winning non-fiction author, Ta-nehisi Coates! I had high hopes for this and was not let down. Though it is a slave story of which there are many, Coates focus on family separation really hit a nerve in our current political climate. However he was not heavy handed with this message and the novel was really the personal journeys of the characters. I loved the magical realism element and wanted to know more about the Underground in Virginia. I highly recommend this book!
