Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi
"I said Homegoing was a master class in building 3-dimensional characters using only one chapter. Transcendent Kingdom? Is the masterclass in non-linear chronological storytelling. Yaa Gyasi weaves this story around different points in Gifty's life wi" Read more of this review »

Hanya Yanagihara
“...when your child dies, you feel everything you'd expect to feel, feelings so well-documented by so many others that I won't even bother to list them here, except to say that everything that's written about mourning is all the same, and it's all the same for a reason - because there is no read deviation from the text. Sometimes you feel more of one thing and less of another, and sometimes you feel them out of order, and sometimes you feel them for a longer time or a shorter time. But the sensations are always the same.

But here's what no one says - when it's your child, a part of you, a very tiny but nonetheless unignorable part of you, also feels relief. Because finally, the moment you have been expecting, been dreading, been preparing yourself for since the day you became a parent, has come.

Ah, you tell yourself, it's arrived. Here it is.

And after that, you have nothing to fear again.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life
