Thank you for this attentive review, @GabbyBellot. [Aftershocks is a] "form of..repair through revelation. This is no ordinary jeremiad or jejune recounting..; instead, it is an evocation of a feeling, of what it feels like to be constantly in search of a place to call home."
It’s going to take me years to process the fact that so few people believed that trump’s support skews wealthy until a bunch of people flew in and staged an insurrection and provided video evidence
All of those op eds about how Trumpism was about white working class economic anxiety. Pages and pages and pages of them.
Okay, I’ll share moment w/ @NadiaOwusu1 from our interview on our great memoir. She has do many national strands within her, I felt compelled to tell her what I tell our daughters (who do also). Don’t limit yourself to being one thing. No human is. Whitman says: I am multitudes.
I loved this reminder! Thank you, @nprscottsimon.
On Jan. 19th at 6PM author @NadiaOwusu1 will talk with @jessicashattuck about her new memoir, "Aftershocks" that looks at race, identity & immigration, the emotional toll of family secrets and the struggle of belonging.

I have been so very moved by the critical engagement with Aftershocks, and how fun to be on this "best reviewed" list with @torreypeters, Gabriel Byrne, and George Saunders and other books on my TBR.
Join me and my love @fi0mar on insta. We'll be talking writing and racial justice. Then, later, my love @evburnett will be talking about centering the experiences of Black women in social change efforts. <3
This week, we celebrate @NadiaOwusu1's pub date for AFTERSHOCKS (@simonschuster)! Owusu will also be teaching an Orion writers' workshop this spring (dates TBA). Check out her new essay, "Fatherland," a braid of landscape, identity, & climate grief.
Thank you to @Orion_Magazine for giving this essay a home. It's about Anansi stories, Asase Yaa, climate grief, and the fallacy of endless economic growth.
Happy pub day to @NadiaOwusu1! Her breathtaking memoir, Aftershocks, comes out today. Here's my book review in @LAReviewofBooks. A big thanks to the editorial staff for the chance to write about this stunning debut!
