Black Water Sister by Zen Cho

Staff Pick

You know that feeling when you move back home after college and your dead grandmother's ghost haunts you, and home is so different now?! And then your grandmother starts following you around, and she's constantly roasting you, and she knows you're gay but your parents don't? And then she wants you to work out that tiff she's having with the local gods--along with the mob? This book perfectly captures that relatable experience. It's a seriously good and endlessly exciting novel, both a fascinating exploration of the author's own culture and an all-too-real depiction of graduating into today's workforce, one that reckons with the lasting effects of imperialist systems of governance and globalization, and that looks straight-on at violent systems where women and queer people take the brunt of the injustice.
