In this ethereal novel, listeners experience the rare treat of a gifted writer narrating her own mesmerizing work. Yejidé's introspective, languorous pace is well suited to the otherworldly journeys of twins Osiris and Nephthys Kinwell--he from the other side of death's door and she barely on this side of it. Yejidé richly characterizes the alcoholic Nephthys, who is burdened by the voices of the dead yet strives to guide her young great-nephew, whose tales of "The River Man" lead her to suspect he is seeing the ghost of Osiris. Poverty, racism, and death are intensely examined with the underlying hope of ultimate justice and renewal. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2021]
