Natashia Deon with Her Novel “Grace”

Author Natashia Deon reading from and discussing her haunting, visceral debut novel, “Grace.”

“This is the violent, terrifying world of the antebellum South, where African-American women were prey and their babies sold like livestock. This is the story of mothers and daughters — of violence, absence, love, and legacies. Deón’s vivid imagery, deft characterization, and spellbinding language carry the reader through this suspenseful tale… heralds the birth of a powerful new voice in American fiction.”
— Kirkus, Starred Review
“…a swirling wild ride into the sheer terror of slavery and the aftermath…”
— Susan Straight, Between Heaven and Here
