Lions and Lobsters and Foxes and Frogs: Fables from Aesop
Call Me By Your Name--the novel

Homegoing

HomegoingHomegoing by Yaa Gyasi
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A marvelous idea for an epic story. I most enjoyed the first half of the book, but I wasn't as captivated by the second half. I actually ended the book wishing for more. Some of the generations/characters/stories needed greater exploration, the single chapter feeling rushed and undeveloped at times.

One of the great strengths of the novel is the way each chapter focuses on the physical bodies of the characters.
