This is not a particularly imaginative recommendation. I think if you know Octavia Butler’s work at all, you’ve probably read Kindred. I remember the first time I read it, it seemed like a uniquely Black nightmare … being transported back in time to the antebellum period and finding yourself enslaved. I was reminded of it because the movie Antebellum with the incomparable Janelle Monáe is coming out in August and I’m looking forward to it. But whether or not the movie turns out to be memorable, this book certainly is. I recommend.

Happy Reading!

And then there’s this …
Antebellum, COMING August 2020
