InDigest's friend Marlon James' new book The Book of Night Women got a great review in the New York Times today.
"Marlon James’s second novel is both beautifully written and devastating...Writing in the spirit of Toni Morrison and Alice Walker but in a style all his own, James has conducted an experiment in how to write the unspeakable — even the unthinkable. And the results of that experiment are an undeniable success."
Now go buy it. And if you're in Minnesota go see him read at Common Good Books on March 31.
