Product description

Review

The Mothers has stayed with me since I first read it, the words and the intimacy of the prose seeping into my pores - Roxane Gay on The Mothers

An engaging and assured debut novel of depth, and introspective power. It succeeds as a brilliant study of a modern black woman, and as a lyrical and majestic portrait of her place in society - Chigozie Obioma on The Mothers

Ferociously moving . . . a lush book, a book of so many secrets, betrayal . . . I found myself reading not to find out what happens to the characters, but to find out who they are - New York Times Book Review on The Mothers

With echoes of James Baldwin's Go Tell It on the Mountain, The Mothers is not your typical coming-of-age novel: It begins with Nadia's abortion, an experience often absent from our culture's stories, and goes on to look at how women step in to nurture - and sometimes betray - one another - Vogue on The Mothers

A beautifully written, sad and lingering book - Guardian on The Mothers

[A] compelling debut - New Yorker on The Mothers

Luminous . . . engrossing and poignant, this is one not to miss - People on The Mothers

A refreshingly fast-paced story of young love, race, and religious hypocrisy - Vanity Fair on The Mothers
