Abeng - Michelle Cliff Fascinating, not as smooth as No Telephone to Heaven, which I read first, powerful but full of first-novel problems. I'm looking forward to comparing/cross-referencing the fictionalized account of light-skinned Clare's friendship with dark-skinned Zoe with the non-fiction version in Cliff's new memoir, If I Could Write This In Fire, like a lot of POC writers, uses it as a corrective, all the things that fall out of God's view, History's view, the usual written view, the histories unacknowledged but still shaping the present -- but not very coherent yet.
