In Danzy Senna’s captivating and much anticipated novel, New People (Riverhead Books), Maria, a biracial graduate student engaged to an equally racially ambiguous (and newly Black identified) fiance becomes obsessed with a man she barely knows.

Named a “Best Summer Read” by Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, BuzzFeed, Glamour, Bustle, Chicago Review of Books, Ms. Magazine, Pop Sugar, and Newsday, this novel has much to say about class, the “post racial” and a lack of connection among people who on the surface seem to have everything. Danzy Senna’s books include Where Did You Sleep Last Night and Caucasia, which was named a Best Book of the Year by the Los Angeles Times.

“Senna's latest is a great read, both compelling and thoughtful. The narrative has a page-turning urgency, as Maria tumbles toward a disaster of her own making, while her musings on race shift between provocative and cynical.”—Library Journal

“Senna’s meditation on 1996 America and its false sense of progress is an eerie picture of society today...With a dark sense of humor, Senna builds her story with a horror-like tension that releases with a tongue-in-cheek sigh. Sure to keep readers riding white-knuckled to the end.” —Booklist
