Black & African American Women's Fiction
Date Published: June 7, 2022
There is nothing like American racial injustice to teach an outsider the difference between perception and reality.
Praise of Now Lila Knows
“The racial politics of a small town in Vermont, as seen through Lila’s eyes, provides an illuminating counterplay between Caribbean and American Blackness.”
“As a portrait of Lila’s political and racial awakening, the novel is a grand success.”
“I fell deep, hard, and fast into this book. The very first sentence slices clean and that energy continues throughout the entire story. I am amazed at Elizabeth Nunez’s capacity to paint for the reader not only Lila’s personal and political lives but her literary life, too.”
