A review by allisonbuie
Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi


I'm stunned at how perfect this book is -
The topics are tough and emotionally heavy & the book deals with philosophical themes that I would normally find a total chore to read. But in this case, those topics and themes do not detract from the story itself. They also do not feel out of place or lecturey. It is only captivating (every sentence).
