This is a disturbing, fascinating novella...

This is a disturbing, fascinating novella inspired by “The Deep” by Clipping the rap group featuring Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, Wonder). It features the historian or memory keeper of the wajinru—the water-breathing children evolved from the pregnant women pushed off slave ships during the Middle Passage—trying to survive the weight of their memories. It’s haunting and thoroughly impressive pulling together issues of gender, traumatic generational memories, and the magic of the sea.
