I LOVE HISTORICAL FICTION. I am glad that Crystal opened the door for conversation. I love the thematic approach - especially starting with Africa - I have some of Thiong'o works and need to crack them open - My goodness there is such good works out there and so little time between newspapers, magazines - having to WORK - and such - but I'm going to make an dent in that genre and some of those titles.
I will have to revisit The Narrows - I read it a long time ago and fell in love with Petry - whose other title The Street is my favorite. Currently, I am working through Bertice Berry's new one The Ties that Bind. The historical fiction is spilling over into biography.
Thanks for the reminder about the Little Black Girl Lost series - I checked the library and most of the copies were out and others "missing" - I supppose I will have to buy it - darn another book purchase - smile.
