Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self
240 pages; Riverhead
Tender, funny, smart and surprising, this 2010 collection illuminates the experience of being young and African American or of mixed race in the 21st century. The characters in these sparkling stories confront cultural divides and the challenges of family—as well as such obstacles as burmese pythons.
