Inheritance

“Lazarre is unflinching in her depiction of the destructive historical assumptions and taboos on all sides of the color and racial divide. . . .and in [her] luminous prose, Inheritance becomes an unsettling and necessary meditation on the messiness of America’s shared racial heritage in all its quarrelsome parts.”
Wesley Brown
