Another Brooklyn

22.99

The acclaimed New York Times bestselling and National Book Awardwinning author ofBrown Girl Dreaming delivers her first adult novel in twenty years.

Running into a long-ago friend sets memory from the 1970s in motion for August, transporting her to a time and a place where friendship was everythinguntil it wasnt. For August and her girls, sharing confidences as they ambled through neighborhood streets, Brooklyn was a place where they believed that they were beautiful, talented, brillianta part of a future that belonged to them.

But beneath the hopeful veneer, there was another Brooklyn, a dangerous place where grown men reached for innocent girls in dark hallways, where ghosts haunted the night, where mothers disappeared. A world where madness was just a sunset away and fathers

found hope in religion. Like Louise Meriwethers Daddy Was a Number Runner and Dorothy AllisonsBastard Out of Carolina, Jacqueline WoodsonsAnother Brooklyn heartbreakingly illuminates the formative time when childhood gives way to adulthoodthe promise and peril of growing upand exquisitely renders a powerful, indelible, and fleeting friendship that united four young lives.
