Staff Picks: Ring Shout by P. Djèlí Clark
It’s Locus’s 2020 Holiday Countdown of Staff Picks!
Arley Sorg selects Ring Shout by P. Djèlí Clark. Gabino Iglesias says it “is a wildly imaginative, superbly written narrative about friendship, magic, and fighting racism that occupies a strange interstitial space between historical fiction, fantasy, and body horror. It is also a smart reimagining of history that pushes current racial tensions to the forefront and forces readers to remember that bigotry should be fought in all its incarnations.”
Read Gabino’s full review in the December 2020 issue of Locus, and Gary K. Wolfe’s review online or in the October 2020 issue of Locus.
