U.S.A. / 2011
"Set in a middle-class neighborhood in Atlanta in the 1980s, the novel revolves around James Witherspoon's two families--the public one and the secret one. When the daughters from each family meet and form a friendship, only one of them knows they are sisters. It is a relationship destined to explode when secrets are revealed and illusions shattered."— GoodReads. I felt this quote in my soul! Tayari Jones is the editor of the brand new story collection from Akashic Books, Atlanta Noir. If you recall, I reviewed another recent book in the Noir Series, Trinidad Noir. I can't wait to read Atlanta Noir. It was released just a few days ago.
