A short but w lovely book for fans of both authors, but also a lot of insight into freedom of speach, creativity and the importance of libraries.

Finished this book about a month ago but it's taken me this long to write a review about it because I have such mixed feelings about it. It was a deeply affecting novel, but mostly not in a good way. I really wanted to like it, but the more I think about what I didn't like about the book, the more it bothers me. I even downgraded this review from two stars to one from the time I started writing it to the time I finished.

There are two types of books, usually, that makes one feel like there are no words to describe the experience: They are either unbelievably detrimental, or exceptionally (and positively) impactful. Given the overall high rating, it is redundant to tell, to which category does My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies belong. I don't think there are that many books, especially fiction, that could leave such a profound effect on a reader's mind.

Some words to take to heart, some words to live by, some words to get (more) liberated in the pursuit of artistic endeavours. Definitely a good thing to read.
