Nicola Yoon on her new adult novel, 'One of Our Kind'

While there isn’t any gore in Nicola Yoon’s newest novel, One of Our Kind, it’s definitely a horror story.

When a Black family moves to a wealthy neighborhood made up of only Black residents, protagonist Jasmyn feels a sense of relief that she doesn’t have to worry about her young son navigating life as a minority in this Black utopia. But that relief is short-lived, as Jasmyn realizes there's something a bit suspect about the community.


One of Our Kind was published by Knopf.

Marginalia was produced at KMUW Wichita and is part of the NPR Podcast Network.
