A provocative and compelling novel by Danzy Senna following the relationship of Maria and Khalil, two engaged biracial 27 year olds living in Brooklyn in the late 90s. Exploring issues of mixed race identity, New People is what happens when Lauren Groff’s Fates and Furies crosses Paul Beatty’s The Sellout and will be sure to make you think.
