I had heard early acclaim for Yaa Gyasi’s debute novel, Homegoing, but it wasn’t until ElCicco’s rave review that I first thought, “I must read this.” I come and go on long family sagas, but Gyasi has forever changed the game, in my opinion. This is a must-read book, and I cannot quite say enough about it. Definitely in the running for Best Book of 2016. I develop this argument for Best Book 2016 in my full review. Also: if you don’t think you like literary fiction, I strongly believe this might change your mind.
