Fiction. African American Fiction. Literature. HTML:Named one of the Most Anticipated Books of 2019 by LitHub and The Millions.

Called one of the Top 10 Literary Fiction titles of Fall by Publishers Weekly.

An extraordinary new novel about the influence of history on a contemporary family, from the New York Times-bestselling and National Book Award-winning author of Another Brooklyn and Brown Girl Dreaming.


Two families from different social classes are joined together by an unexpected pregnancy and the child that it produces. Moving forward and backward in time, with the power of poetry and the emotional richness of a narrative ten times its length, Jacqueline Woodson's extraordinary new novel uncovers the role that history and community have played in the experiences, decisions, and relationships of these families, and in the life of this child.

As the book opens in 2001, it is the evening of sixteen-year-old Melody's coming of age ceremony in her grandparents' Brooklyn brownstone. Watched lovingly by her relatives and friends, making her entrance to the soundtrack of Prince, she wears a special custom-made dress. But the event is not without poignancy. Sixteen years earlier, that very dress was measured and sewn for a different wearer: Melody's mother, for her own ceremony?? a celebration that ultimately never took place.

Unfurling the history of Melody's parents and grandparents to show how they all arrived at this moment, Woodson considers not just their ambitions and successes but also the costs, the tolls they've paid for striving to overcome expectations and escape the pull of history. As it explores sexual desire and identity, ambition, gentrification, education, class and status, and the life-altering facts of parenthood, Red at the Bone most strikingly looks at the ways in which young people must so often make long-lasting decisions about their lives??even before they have begun to figure out who they are and what they want to be.

Read by Jacqueline Woodson, with Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Sabe), Peter Francis James (Po??Boy), Shayna Small (Iris), and Bahni Turpin (Melody<

A story about a 15 yr old black girl who gets pregnant and how it affects the lives around her. Well written. Kirkus: Woodson sings a fresh song of Brooklyn, an aria to generations of an African American family.National Book Award winner Woodson (Harbor Me, 2018, etc.) returns to her cherished Brooklyn, its ?cardinals and flowers and bright-colored cars. Little girls with purple ribbons and old women with swollen ankles.? For her latest coming-of-age story, Woodson opens in the voice of Melody, waiting on the interior stairs of her grandparents? brownstone. She?s 16, making her debut, a ?ritual of marking class and time and transition.? She insists that the assembled musicians play Prince?s risqu? ?Darling Nikki? as she descends. Melody jabs at her mother, Iris, saying ?It?s Prince. And it?s my ceremony and he?s a genius so why are we even still talking about it? You already nixed the words. Let me at least have the music.? Woodson famously nails the adolescent voice. But so, too, she burnishes all her characters? perspectives. Iris? sexual yearning for another girl at Oberlin College gives this novel its title: ?She felt red at the bonelike there was something inside of her undone and bleeding.? By then, Iris had all but abandoned toddler Melody and the toddler?s father, Aubrey, in that ancestral brownstone to make her own way. In 21 lyrical chapters, readers hear from both of Iris? parents, who met at Morehouse, and Aubrey?s mother, CathyMarie, who stretched the margarine and grape jelly sandwiches to see him grown. Woodson?s ear for music¥whether Walt Whitman's or A Tribe Called Quest's¥is exhilarating, as is her eye for detail. Aubrey and little Melody, holding hands, listen to an old man whose ?bottom dentures were loose in his mouth, moving in small circles as he spoke.? The novel itself circles elegantly back to its beginning, Melody and Iris in 2001 for a brava finale, but not before braiding the 1921 Race Massacre in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to the fires of 9/11. The thread is held by Iris? mother, Sabe, who hangs on through her fatal illness ?a little while longer. Until Melody and Iris can figure each other out.?In Woodson, at the height of her powers, readers hear the blues: ?beneath that joy, such a sadness.?

For me, this was like one of the many books I read in college and appreciated but didn't really enjoy. Like [b:As I Lay Dying|77013|As I Lay Dying|William Faulkner|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1451810782l/77013._SY75_.jpg|481854]. I can see how it's brilliant. At the same time, I never cared very deeply about the characters. Impressive, worth admiration, but not my favorite. ( )
