The Travelers
(Hogarth, 2019)

A cast of unforgettable characters’ lives intersect in this interracial, intergenerational saga, tracing the stories of two families – one black, one white – through the second half of the 20th century and across three continents. The book examines the forces that shape our lives and our connections with one another, whether historical, societal, personal, or coincidental. With piercing humor, exacting dialogue, and a beautiful sense of place, this debut novel is both an intimate family portrait and a sweeping exploration of what it means to be American today.
