Best Fiction and Memoirs by Authors of Color

Works of fiction including novels, short stories, plays, etc. and memoirs written by non-white authors. Sequential art (i.e. manga/manhwa/manhua and comics/graphic novels) is eligible for this list, but please add only the first volume of a series--or the complete/collected work, if one is available--rather than multiple volumes of the same series.
