Three and a half years after his first book, Jamaican writer Marlon James is back with the intense slave narrative The Book of Night Women. Lilith, the main character, is a green-eyed slave who joins a secret sisterhood of slaves planning a revolt on the island. Lilith believes she’s better than her fellow slaves because of her green eyes, which are evidence of a white father. Lilith’s story is painful, but worth reading.

Speak your peace.
