Books: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi


HomegoingHomegoing by Yaa Gyasi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yaa Gyasi’s “Homegoing” explores the slave trade and its impact over the generations from the 18th-century British Gold Coast colony to modern-day Ghana. Each chapter in this ambitious novel is from the point of view of one of the descendants of half-sisters and the stories are linked by a pendant passed down by families. Highly recommended.
