Ru Freeman
Freeman elucidates not only the complexities of friendship, but the sanctity of motherhood and the pervasiveness of loss, how political corruption and the violence it breeds affects women uniquely. A heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting novel that celebrates our ability to transcend tragedy.— Rishi Reddi, author of Karma and Other Stories and winner of the 2008 PEN/L.L. Winship Award
