New People by Danzy Senna

Recommended by Afton.

A quick read, but one you'll think about for a long time after you finish it. On the surface, New People is a simple story - a woman in the process of writing her dissertation and getting ready for her wedding becomes infatuated with a poet she barely knows. Under the surface though, this book explores the many layers and nuances of being mixed race 20 years ago.
