Her most recent, Anna In-Between, was a New York Times Editors’ Choice and won the 2010 PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award and the 2010 Writers for Writers Award from Poets & Writers and Barnes & Noble. Her other novels include Prospero’s Daughter (2006 Florida Center for the Literary Arts One Book, One Community selection, 2006 Novel of the Year for Black Issues Book Review); and Bruised Hibiscus (American Book Award winner).
