New People by Danzy Senna
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was once a PhD student in ethnomusicology, so to find a protagonist with that shared experience was a huge surprise and definitely added a start to my reading of this novel. I loved Maria and her weird obsessions, but she did start making puzzling decisions near the end. I enjoyed the ongoing discussion of identity within biracial realities, and am intrigued/terrified of the music of Jonestown!
Thanks to the publisher for providing an eARC through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
