HEADS OF THE COLORED PEOPLE
by Nafissa Thompson-Spires
published by Vintage

*

Heads of the Colored People interrogates our supposedly post-racial era to wicked and devastating effect, exposing the violence that threatens black Americans, no matter their apparent success.

A teenager is insidiously bullied as her YouTube following soars; an assistant professor finds himself losing a subtle war against his office mate; a nurse is worn down by the demand for her skills as a funeral singer. And across a series of stories, a young woman grows up, negotiating and renegotiating her identity.

This electric collection of short stories marks the arrival of a remarkable writer and an urgent new voice.
