Heat. Fire. Rain so blue. The blackness. The color of our hue.

Lakiesha Carr writes elegantly about grief and passion, loss and redemption...A gorgeous debut from a talent to watch. --Laura Warrell, author of Sweet, Soft, Plenty Rhythm

A magisterial, intimate look at Black womanhood: the grief that is carried within the body and the bonds of love that grant strength.

A middle-aged woman feed slots at a secret, back-room parlor. A new mother descends into a devastating postpartum depression, wracked with the fear that she is unable to protect her children. A daughter returns home to join the other women in her family waging spiritual combat with the ghosts of their past.

An Autobiography of Skin is a dazzling and masterful portrait of interconnected generations in the South from a singular new voice, offering a raw and tender view into the interior lives of Black women. It is at once a powerful look at how experiences are carried inside the body, inside the flesh and skin, and a joyous testament to how healing can be found within--in love, mercy, gratitude, and freedom.
