5.0 out of 5 stars ORIGINALE ed ANTICONVENZIONALE
Reviewed in Italy on August 9, 2021
Primo romanzo di una donna di colore ad arrivare in testa alle classifica della cosiddetta "Narrativa Tascabile", vincitore del Booker Prize e candidato a molti altri, racconta le storie di Amma regista nera, di sua figlia Yazz universitaria ambiziosa, della vecchia amica Shirley, di quella più "nuova" Dominique e di altre 8 donne. Dalle loro storie sentimentali e professionali,  nasce un romanzo anticonvenzionale ed appassionante specchio di una realtà stupenda in quanto eterogenea e che la società spesso se ne dimentica.
