If all the books on the list are like this one, I’m in danger of using up my good adjectives by June. But look. I’m in my third chapter, and Homegoing is astonishing.
The writing is wonderful. The subject matter is totally outside my experience (we begin in Ghana in the 1700s), and yet totally within it (we begin with a daughter, then her half-sister; we begin with families).
I resent the time I spend not reading it.
