Author Interview

“I wanted to write about a Black woman’s trial and error. It’s important to me that the Black women in my fiction are allowed leeway to be fallible, and so human. It was exciting to write a Black woman who makes mistakes, who wants to be touched, and who is dogged in the pursuit of her art.”
–Raven Leilani on Luster
