Description


Named a Washington Post Best Book of the Year

"The entire novel takes place over the course of a single morning... and the effect is devastatingly potent." --Marie Claire

When a woman--known only as Mother--moves her family from Atlanta to its wealthy suburbs, she discovers that neither the times nor the people have changed since her childhood in a small Southern town. Despite the intervening decades, Mother is met with the same questions: Where are you from? No, where are you really from? The American-born daughter of Bengali immigrants, she finds that her answer--Here--is never enough. Mother's simmering anger breaks through one morning, when, during a police raid on her home, she finally refuses to be complacent--and suffers all-too-familiar consequences.

"Devi S. Laskar's The Atlas of Reds and Blues is as narratively beautiful as it is brutal... I've never read a novel that does nearly as much in so few pages." --Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy
