Marginalia: Yaa Gyasi On 'Transcendent Kingdom'
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 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.
Marginalia was produced at KMUW Wichita. If you like this podcast, please consider leaving a rating or review on Apple Podcasts.
