"weaves together a terrific multigenerational family tale that, like Alex Hailey's Roots, will inspire readers to research their family history. Writing in a mystical style similar to that of Gloria Naylor's Bailey's Cafe, [ ] is an imaginative storyteller who mesmerizes readers with her words."~Library Journal

We've featured this talented writer recently. 2010 will mark the 10th anniversary of her debut novel and the release of her latest work. Name the author and the new book title.

Glorious by Bernice McFadden. Thanks, Mardel

I was going to say Lalita Tademy, but don't think she has a new book coming out. I am intrigued.

Bernice McFadden

debut novel is Sugar, and new novel is Nowhere is a Place.

(I remember when I was four and My mom slapped my face - because we were moving, had shown the place to a family and I asked if they were moving in. She must have been stressed, but it made me very sad at the time - the memory stayed with me for a long time. )

I like these quizzes - forces me to look up authors that I've never heard of before.

I should have mentioned that a face slapping is in the new book from Bernice McFadden - that's why I mentioned my memory - when I re-read my comment it just looked a little random. :)

Correction - new novel is Glorious (Johnny Temple), coming out in May 2010. (Bernice McFadden) First novel is Sugar.

(didn't read carefully enough)
