    Holler, Child: Stories

    In "Holler, Child’s" eleven brilliant stories, LaToya Watkins presses at the bruises of guilt, love, and circumstance. Each story introduces us to a character irrevocably shaped by place and reaching toward something—hope, reconciliation, freedom.

    Throughout "Holler, Child," we see love lost and gained, and grief turned to hope. Much like LaToya Watkins’s acclaimed debut novel, "Perish", this collection peers deeply into lives of women and men experiencing intimate and magnificent reckonings—exploring how race, power, and inequality map on the individual, and demonstrating the mythic proportions of everyday life.
