Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A New York Times Notable Book • From the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner: an emotional powerhouse of a novel about a modern Odysseus returning to a 1950s America mined with lethal pitfalls for an unwary Black man

When Frank Money joined the army to escape his too-small world, he left behind his cherished and fragile little sister, Cee. After the war, he journeys to his native Georgia with a renewed sense of purpose in search of his sister, but it becomes clear that their troubles began well before their wartime separation. Together, they return to their rural hometown of Lotus, where buried secrets are unearthed and where Frank learns at last what it means to be a man, what it takes to heal, and—above all—what it means to come home.

Thinking Face“I didn’t expect to be so captivated by this book. At first, when I started reading, I wasn’t familiar with Harrison’s writing style, but I got used to it. The story made me eager to read it through until the end. It’s traumatizing and it presents a profound brother and sister connection with their own stories.”
