Author Yaa Gyasi

Ghana-born American writer Yaa Gyasi follows her award-winning debut, Homegoing, with the Transcendent Kingdom, the story of a Ghanaian family faced with racism, depression, and the opioid crisis after their move to Huntsville, Alabama. And it explores whether the binaries of religion and science must be an either/or.

Transcendent Kingdom - paperback

Transcendent Kingdom was just released in paperback and I was so pleased to visit with Yaa Gyasi about her work.

Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi was published by Vintage.
