Unlucky list #13.
Homegoing/ This is my favorite book of 2016. I cannot recommend it enough. Follow the familial lines of two half-sisters in Ghana, the book weaves its way through generations and years beginning in the 18th century.
Moonglow/ Written after sitting by his grandfathers bedside while he was in his final week of life, Micheal Chabon, unwraps his grandfathers narrative. Described as an "an autobiography wrapped in a novel disguised as a memoir," this is at the top of my to read list.
