Early sixties: Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” gives hope. The young James wants to leave Irish origin and poverty behind him and dreams of a future as a lawyer. Contrast: African American Agnes is stopped by a white policeman on her first date on her way home. Do you think she even has a future?

Regina Porter wrote a dense novel about two families, two skin colors, and a common longing for reconciliation – and in doing so she sharply explores contemporary America and its traumas of racism and inequality. The Guardian says “Pure happiness” about the debut of this great new voice of world literature.

Regina Porter studied at the renowned Iowa Writer’s Workshop; she is an award-winning playwright. She was born in Savannah, Georgia, and now lives in Brooklyn.
