Staff Reviews


This book changed my life when I first read it junior year in high school. The writing style that Hurston uses is breathtaking. The way she sets up the fictional world of an all-black town (based off of her anthropological studies) is so lit (for lack of a better word) because she shows the authencity of black life that is mostly erased from academia. This book serves as a constant reminder for myself to honor who I am and how I want to be in the world-- loved, respected and never apologize for my truth -- Thank you Ms. Zora <3 

— Karl

Hurston illustrates a poignant fictional account of a woman who renounces societal expectations by embarking on a journey to self-discovery with the help of a man ten years her junior. This is a poetic tale that explores identity, grief, class, colorism and love. A stunning body of work that guarantees to make its reader question their own convictions about all five.
