There Is Confusion

This is the first novel by Jessie Redmon Fauset and it is a rich and wonderful introduction to the wonderful writing abilities of Faucet. The story centers around the lives of a group of friends and family coming of age during the late 1800's and early 1900's. You get a picture of the lives of the first generation not directly touched by slavery. We follow them as they navigate the new and changing Back middle-class worlds of New York and Philadelphia.

I had a wonderful discussion with Marci and Ako from the Colored Pages Book Club podcast. A bi-weekly podcast where they discuss fiction, fantasy, and magical realism written by writers from colorful and diverse backgrounds! They have a fantastic podcast, and you should check them out.
