Critics choice

home.jpgThe most critically praised new story is “Homegoing” by Yaa Gyasi, a “page-turning” saga about the intertwined fates of two half-sisters,  Effia, who is married off to a British colonist, and Esi, who is sold into slavery. The story follows their descendants in Africa and the Americas.  Gyasi tells his tale with “remarkable freshness and subtlety.’  Also noted from the international scene is “The Golden Son” by Shilpi Gowda, a novel about a   Hindi-American medical student who is caught between two worlds.
