IN WEST MILLS by De’Shawn Charles Winslow
In a glowing review of IN WEST MILLS, The New York Times Book Review writes: “From the first page, Winslow establishes an uncanny authority and profound tone that belie the book’s debut status… He paints a community so tightknit and thorough it becomes easy to forget the people in it don’t exist, that no one will be playing music later tonight at Miss Goldie’s barnhouse juke joint, or traveling upbridge to Manning’s General Store for candy. Knot is as complex and endearing a protagonist as Zora Neale Hurston’s Janie.” Bloomsbury published the book on June 4, 2019.
