This little book packs a serious punch! A collection of short stories like none I‘ve read before, every one gave me things to think about.

The title story is about the monsters we become on Black Friday, barely able to communicate and so focused on deals that we don‘t mind sacrificing weaker folks to get what we want.

It‘s less than 200 pages. Check this one out! #recommendsday

Hard to sum this up in so few words. Overall, I enjoyed. Several stories hit me in the gut and wouldn't let go. Others went completely over my head and not sure what he was trying to say. Definitely a good conversation piece regarding issues that face us today. 3 1/2 stars

About a quarter of the way through. These short stories are excellent and eerie, like racially-charged Black Mirror episodes. I don't want to keep reading because I don't want them to end.

Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah's Friday Black: Stories is an amazing collection of sharp, biting satire and brilliant science fiction. He confronts police brutality, consumerism, and racism in this series of stand-alone stories that somehow seem to take place in the same dark world. The opening stories, "The Finkelstein 5" depicts a world in which the protagonist must modulate his blackness. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod In the face of a white man's acquittal after he brutally murders five black children in front of a library, Emmanuel reacts by increasing his Blackness on the scale he has created to assess himself. Adjei-Brenyah, in this story and the rest, confronts both the brutality of humanity and its movement, perhaps, toward more compassion. 2mo

When Roxane Gay says “Read this book,” I pay attention. Wow! This macabre and funny collection of near-future stories isn‘t for the faint of heart. Adjei-Brenyah cranks up satire to hyperbolic levels—and the results are powerful because it‘s so easy to see what lies beneath the exaggeration: today‘s truths.

sarahbarnes I follow the same rule about Roxane Gay. This one is on my list! Great review. 2mo

When Marlene was 6 and I was still a crying bag of poop, my parents tried to convince her that having a younger brother would actually help her to be a good teacher because she could practice information transfer on me. They also told her that I could never be in competition with her in life or their hearts after they caught her trying to smother me with a pillow. They tell that story and laugh about it now.

Fuckton points to Deirdra‘s head. “Angels have horns?”
Deirdra frowns and brings one of her hands to the horns on her head. She touches one of the horns for a moment, then quickly drops her hand away, as if they burn to touch. “It‘s a style,” she says.

⭐️⭐️ Shocking, gruesome violence and hot button societal issues are sure to garner attention. 🙄 I can appreciate how difficult it is to write a short story collection, but I DO NOT appreciate, nor respect, a fictionalized school shooting for entertainment value. Not in a short story. NOT EVER. And certainly not in this manner. (cont in comments) ⬇️

britt_brooke Further, the anti-abortion story made me want to barf, not because it was effective, but because it was so poorly executed. It was by far the worst story in this mediocre-at-best collection. “Finkelstein 5” and “Zimmer Land” were solid and are the only reason this is two stars instead of one. Beautiful cover, disappointing social satire. 2mo
Caterina Oh dear... I bought this on sale for the Kindle a while back because of the rave reviews, but your criticisms have me feeling like I might rate it poorly as well. 😓 2mo
britt_brooke @Caterina That‘s when I bought it as well. I expected more based on the amazing reviews. If you do read it, I‘d love to hear what you think. 2mo

▶️🎧 #FridayBlack | Started this short story collection yesterday, but not listening right this sec because we‘re at the park. Grabbing some extra 👣 by walking laps while my 5 year old plays. We are so fortunate to have this AMAZING all-inclusive playground nearby. It‘s for kids of all abilities and really warms my heart. There‘s even a swing (not pictured) that can accommodate a wheel chair. 💚

Happy Monday! ☀️

Really loved these short stories, with their slight edge of sci-fi or even magical realism. I liked the weaving in of African history, and the sense that some of the more futuristic elements are more than feasible in our reality.

I‘m sure I‘m the last to know.... but this is exciting... Adjei-Brenyah is writing the script for the film and executive producing too. But how do you make a film of short stories??

https://deadline.com/2019/02/universal-takes-rights-to-nana-kwame-adjei-brenyahs...

Mitch @GingerAntics I agree... 5mo
wanderinglynn Are the stories connected somehow? By a character or theme? I‘m intrigued too on how the author is going to turn short stories into a movie. 🤔 5mo

Why do I keep reading short story collection? I know that, on the whole, short stories do not work for me. And then I went and read a sci-fi/fantasy collection, knowing that don‘t care for those genres. Adjei-Brenyah is super talented and these stories are well written. I still didn‘t enjoy this read. But I rate this as a pick because I liked a few stories and he really, really is talented.

A random month...excellent short stories, thriller-like non fiction, epic storytelling, 2 books in series, eccentric dark comedy and one disappointment!

I‘ve been good with my 2019 goals - I‘ve read my #onenonfictionamonth and I‘ve completed a series. Which feels good, because I‘ve found it hard to focus a bit this month and haven‘t been seen walking around the house with my nose in a book negotiating the furniture!

Wowww! This stunning, explosive debut confronts brutal realities about racism and capitalism in a series of surreal, speculative, dystopian short stories that echo George Saunders at his very best. Adjei-Brenyah immerses us in the darkest depths of humanity and modern life, but leaves us with hope for “[making] the bleak a little better,” as he puts it. Some books make you feel like you‘ve come across something really special. This is one of them.
