Staff Pick

What happens when your savior isn't enough? How do you protect your family? Through visceral and vibrant prose, Kawai Strong Washburn unfolds a beautiful and heartbreaking family drama. The Flores family has been followed by the shades of the old Hawai'ian gods, but the crushing realities of poverty, racism, and sexism bend them to a breaking point. When tragedy strikes, the family will have to pull. With tight storytelling and evocative lyricism, this is an incredible debut from an exciting new voice of American literature.
