Tuotekuvaus

American-born artist Chris is forced to reconsider his own concept of family during a visit to his mother's Caribbean homeland.

Alecia McKenzie's tender new novel [is] an emotionally resonant ode to adopted families and community resilience.
--New York Times Book Review, Editors' Choice

Shortlisted for the 2020 Caribbean Readers' Awards (Best Adult Novel)!

Delightfully original, this novel centers Chris, an American who travels to his mother's homeland of Jamaica to reflect and heal after tragedy strikes. What he encounters is unexpected, complicated and, perhaps, just what he needs.
--Ms. Magazine

Emotional, enthralling and heartfelt...A story of loss and the infinite types of love.
--Woman's World

Have you ever not wanted a book to end? Were disappointed that the characters are gone from your life? A Million Aunties by Alecia McKenzie is one such novel that makes you yearn for more.
--New York Journal of Books

A wide-ranging novel told in several voices that moves between New York, rural Jamaica, and Paris. Painting is at the heart of the book but so is family, love, heartbreak, and loss. The story pulls you in and holds you right till the end. It's strongly written with a delicate touch.
--New West Indian Guide

Racial identity, nonfamilial relationships, and the restorative nature of art are all explored as McKenzie considers the possibility of regeneration of the human spirit even as we grapple with the tragedies of lost loves and changing worlds. McKenzie successfully integrates various speech patterns in Caribbean patois and a mixture of English and French as she takes readers on a hopeful journey across continents.
--Booklist, STARRED review, a Best New Book of the Week

Thoroughly satisfying...This bighearted narrative of love, loss, and family is handled with grace and beauty.
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

A Million Aunties is an exquisite novel about beauty and pain, and what binds us together. Through captivating character studies, quiet lovely writing and deceptively simple storytelling, McKenzie illuminates basic commonalities and rethinks what family and home mean.
--Shelf Awareness

The beauty and brilliance of Blackness in the diaspora take centerstage in Alecia McKenzie's A Million Aunties, showcasing the intricate textures of identity, place, and connection to survive loss.
