A spellbinding debut about half sisters, one black and one white, on a 1950s road trip through the American South
Self-educated and brown-skinned, Cassie works full time in her grandmotherís laundry in rural Mississippi. Illiterate and white, Judith falls for ďcolored musicĒ and dreams of life as a big city radio star. These teenaged girls are half-sisters. And when they catch wind of their wayward fatherís inheritance coming down in Virginia, they hitch their hopes to a road trip together to claim whatís rightly theirs.
In an old junk car, with a frying pan, a ham, and a few dollars hidden in a shoe, they set off through the American Deep South of the 1950s, a bewitchingly beautiful landscape as well as one bedeviled by racial strife and violence. Suzanne Feldman's Absalomís Daughters combines the buddy movie, the coming-of-age tale, and a dash of magical realism to enthrall and move us with an unforgettable, illuminating novel.
