Kiese Laymon will read from his new novelÂ Long DivisionÂ at this Books & Books book signing. Laymon represents a powerful new voice in American fiction, specifically within the rich tradition of Southern literature. AÂ Wall Street JournalÂ rave review callsÂ Long Division, “funny, astute and searching” while Mr. Laymon is “intimately attuned to the confusion of young black Americans.”Â Kirkus Reviews, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry, andÂ BooklistÂ have all offered praise forÂ Long Division, which is one of the most important debut novels of 2013.Â Long DivisionÂ is a stunning meta-tale of rebirth, love, and literary redemption, as well as a Twain-esque exploration of celebrity, authorship, violence, religion, and coming of age in post-Katrina Mississippi.
