Daniel Black recommends
Hush Harbor (2023)
Anise Vance
"From the opening chapter of Anise Vance's Hush Harbor, I was totally engrossed. This powerful narrative strikes like a mighty python, wrapping itself around your heart and refusing to let go. At first, you think it's the rhythmic tale of race war in America, then you see it's far more complicated than that. It's about human suffering and who gives a damn; it asks the question 'Will you fight oppressions that have nothing to do with you?'; It's a song of redemption for a people and a nation too consumed with themselves to see each other. With this novel, Vance conjures black ancestral texts and voices such as Sutton Griggs's Emperium in Emperio and Martin Delaney's Blake. All I can say is, this book is an absolute must-read."
