“I asked myself: Who are the Black people who are writing about grief? And it turns out most of us are. A lot of speculative Black fiction is actually trying to figure out what to do with Black grief. The stories are asking: How do we stay visionary? How do we imagine that we have a future?” – adrienne maree brown

adrienne maree brown is a powerful leader whose voice keeps popping up across genres. Grievers is in the form of a dystopian novel about Black death and, not surprisingly, grief. This is not a book for the fainthearted. Brown deals in realism, and although she started writing this several years before the pandemic, she was frighteningly accurate in some of her predictions. – Liv
