Like most avid readers I love to recount the stories of how particular books came to me The author of this novel is the father of one of the children in my son s fourth grade class I had the privilege of hearing him read selections from the book at my favorite Twin Cities bookstore Magers uinn and was not surprised to hear Johnson is also a spoken word artist Even when I was reading the novel on my own so much of it felt like it could be read aloud and perhaps he will record an audio book some dayThe Through surrounds an African American couple who live outside Tuscaloosa Alabama Adrian is a successful businesswoman who survived both childhood rape and the violence of Hurricane Katrina Ben is an adjunct professor and writer struggling for his voice When a slave ship appears in the sky above their home they must interact simultaneously with the fantastical and the actual threats to their safety and confront their identities as individuals and as a couple Johnson constructs an outer world around their story with elements of Southern mythology contemporary art even a podcast about cicadas Most of my exposure to magical realism has been through Latinx authors I enjoyed the way this writer transferred the genre to the American south and hope to read of his work in the future
