Red at the Bone, by Jacqueline Woodson

    • A lyrical novel, exploring themes of ambition, racial identity, class, and sexual desire. From the opening of Melody’s coming-of-age party, Woodson deftly sketches, and then beautifully fills in the lives and dreams of a rich cast of characters.

      Orange cloth, with gilt lettering to spine. Original dust jacket. A signed first UK edition, first impression.
