Friday Reads: Debuts

TGIF!! We’re looking forward to the weekend and dipping into these great debut novels:

DISGRUNTLED by Asali Solomon
A coming-of-age tale, a portrait of Philadelphia in the late eighties and early nineties, and an examination of the impossible double-binds of race seen through the eyes of eight-year-old Kenya Curtis. “A deft, knowing, bold, and witty debut.” — Booklist, starred review

MAKING NICE by Matt Sumell
“From the first page, Sumell’s exceptional novel in stories unleashes one of the most comically arresting voices this side of Sam Lipsyte’s HOMELAND. Sumell’s debut demonstrates an almost painful compassion for the sinner in most of us, making MAKING NICE even more fun than eavesdropping in a confession booth.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review
