There are more evictions occurring in the United States today, per capita, than there was during the Great Depression.

Poverty in America has long been associated with moral failure, but as Matthew Desmond’s Evicted shows in great detail, it is with those who would take advantage of such structural and cultural iniquities if there were any moral failure occurring.

She wants to see what is essentially little more than a shack and see her uncle, the very young brother of her aunt. She discovers more than she planned and makes herself the victim of those who doesn’t want to reveal the truth of her father’s death.

The Delta is presented with complexity and accuracy, rendering this tale firmly entrenched in time and place. A time with racial injustice and where the norm was persistent racism. Another strong point is the dialogue which suits each character with admirable quality. As every layer is peeled away, new revelations are revealed, Billie’s danger is in heights.

best fiction books to read before you die: Last day

During the celebration of an ancient holiday, the fates of a cast of apparently unconnected people converge into a thought-provoking debut that brings to mind such novels as Station Eleven and The Age of Miracles.

The deeply original novel by Domenica Ruta, the end of the world comes once a year. Every May 28th, humanity gathers to anticipate the demise of the planet and to celebrate as if the day were indeed it’s last. All of the characters go through their last day, every year a day where people party it up as if the world is actually ending. Whether it really is the last day or not is something of a moot point for me.
