Went to the library to pick up a copy of The Merry Wives of Windsor for #shakespearereadalong. Ended up checking out a few other titles. 🙂
This book is a phenomenal debut. It is small and subtle, but will personally sit with me quite a while. The story takes place in an African America community in North Carolina between the 1940‘s and 1980‘s. The main character “Knot” was way ahead of her time, never felt she had to follow the norms. It was so much fun to follow this very independent w0man who would not care about following any of the norms. Very good read.
