Book Of The Week

The Trees
Percival Everett | Graywolf | 2021

Emmett Till artwork, designed by Kelly Rickert for the Goodman Theatre production of Ifa Bayeza’s 'The Ballad of Emmett Till'

Recommended by Mary Corey at the Los Angeles Review Of Books:
"How can a book about the scope and horror of lynching be such a side-splitting page-turner? Perhaps because revenge, even fictional revenge, is particularly sweet when it is so long overdue. Everett, with his masterly fusion of detective fiction and supernatural avenger fantasy, transcends the familiar themes of white cruelty and Black victimhood. It is furious, political, and historical, but it is also art"
