Ta-Nehisi Coates

The Water Dancer

An Amazon Best Book of September 2019: Ta-Nehisi Coates is the author of one of the most important nonfiction books of this decade, Between the World and Me, which means that his fiction debut arrives with a great amount of anticipation. Would the urgency of his nonfiction writing come through in a novel? Would he be as nimble in a made-up world? Would it be good? The answer to all of these questions is a resounding yes. The Water Dancer is a stirring debut, and Coates is the novelist we were hoping he would be. --Chris Schluep, Amazon book review
