10 Book Recommendations To Expand Your Worldview

Book Recommendations

And as a bonus, 11. Friday Black by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah

This is the only set of short stories on the list. Buy it for four stories that will sink teeth deep into your psyche, “The Finkelstein 5,” “Zimmer Land,” “Friday Black,” and “Through the Flash.” I hesitate to give any details, but let me just say this about “Zimmer Land”—imagine a theme park in the future where patrons can pay to shoot an actor who plays Trayvon Martin.

Now go one step further, and imagine what it would be like to be the black man hired to play Trayvon Martin for 8 hours per day, 5 days per week. It is a harrowing tale, and I cannot believe Adjei-Brenyah is a first-time author. Having read it, I really want to listen to it as an audiobook. There was no way I was leaving this book off the list.

So many great minds to converse with, so little time.

Please share this article with anyone who you may think will find it valuable and helpful.
