Staff Picks: A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow

It’s Locus’s 2020 Holiday Countdown of Staff Picks!

Colleen Mondor chooses A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow, which “is thrilling and intense and utilizes truly gorgeous language.”

She says, “On one level, it is very much a story of sirens and mermaids (and gargoyles, elokos, and pixies) and a version of America that both recognizes and acknowledges the existence of such mythic creatures. More significantly, it is the story of two young Black women and the efforts of an America remarkably like our own to silence, trample, and even casually destroy them.”

You can read Colleen’s full review online, or in the July 2020 issue of Locus.
