Give My Love to the Savages
Here is a provocative and raw debut collection of short fiction reminiscent of Junot Diaz's Drown. It is a Black man's life, told in scenes. A Black son who visits his estranged white father in Los Angeles just as the '92 riots begin. A Black Republican, coping with a skin disease that has turned him white, is forced to reconsider his life. A young Black man, fetishized by an older white woman he's just met, is offered a strange and tempting proposal. The nine tales in 'Give My Love to the Savages' illuminate the multifaceted Black experience, exploring the thorny intersections of race, identity, and Black life through an extraordinary cast of characters.
