Suzanne Feldman's debut novel, Absalom's Daughters is "searing" and "magical"

Suzanne Feldman’s debut novel, Absalom’s Daughters, is on sale today!  It’s getting rave reviews from critics and readers alike. In a glowing review, Kirkus said:  "Magnificent... reminiscent of both William Faulkner and Toni Morrison, but her voice is entirely her own and utterly original. Feldman’s prose blisters and pops with sparks. . . . [T]here is a tart sweetness to Judith and Cassie’s interactions. In this novel, most things are not as they seem, and Feldman doesn't hew too close to reality ....Searing and magical...by a monumental new talent.”―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Absalom’s Daughters is the story of half sisters, one black and one white, on a 1950s road trip through the American South. 

Self-educated and brown-skinned, Cassie works full time in her grandmother’s laundry in rural Mississippi. Illiterate and white, Judith falls for “colored music” and dreams of life as a big city radio star. These teenaged girls are half-sisters. And when they catch wind of their wayward father’s inheritance coming down in Virginia, they hitch their hopes to a road trip together to claim what’s rightly theirs.

In an old junk car, with a frying pan, a ham, and a few dollars hidden in a shoe, they set off through the American Deep South of the 1950s, a bewitchingly beautiful landscape as well as one bedeviled by racial strife and violence. Suzanne Feldman's Absalom’s Daughters combines the buddy movie, the coming-of-age tale, and a dash of magical realism to enthrall and move us with an unforgettable, illuminating novel.

If you’re in the area, join Suzanne for a reading and talk at Dublin Roasters in Frederick, MD, from 7-8 p.m. on July 8th!
