  • This cold weather seems only fitting for the Winter Loon @esdeebernhard. It was #kindlefirst for me last November. I took a gamble and was rewarded with a beautifully written story about a young boy dealing with his past while trying to live in the present.

“I felt the past slipping away from me and catching up at the same time”

  • #bookreview • We Cast a Shadow by Maurice Carlos Ruffin (out next week—Jan. 29) • 🐍🐍🐍🐍½/5 • This excellent debut has been compared to The Sellout—which I had mixed feelings about—but I found We Cast a Shadow to be a much more powerful, affecting read. It’s an incisive, semi-satirical novel every bit as dark and compelling as any form of literary realism. Amid the cutting satire, Ruffin’s poignant story of a black father who will stop at nothing to do what he thinks will give his son a better life doesn’t seem at all far-fetched.
.
.
In an America even more racist than the America of today, Ruffin’s unnamed black narrator endures constant humiliation at the hands of his white colleagues. This includes being designated the “diversity chair” of his law firm where only white people hold power, denigrating himself by playing stereotypes to keep his job, embarking on hideously offensive plantation tours, and listening to his white lady boss tell him that she fantasizes about committing crimes while “wearing blackface” so she can then take it off and watch someone else get caught. .
.
The narrator is a tragic figure who has fully internalized the horrors of racism and forces his young, biracial son Nigel to regularly apply skin-lightening cream. He saves up for a demelanization process which will not only turn Nigel’s skin white but will also ensure any future progeny are white. The narrator’s white activist wife Penny is starkly opposed to his treatment of Nigel and frequently stands up for her son to his father. Penny is a “good” white woman; however, it’s clear that even with her activism background and positive intentions, “when it came to the basics of walking through life as prey, she had no idea.” Watching Nigel grapple with his identity while experiencing both the world around him and the world inside his home is especially devastating. .

This bold debut is a thought-provoking must-read that I highly recommend.
