They Come in All Colors Review µ 2 Review ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × Malcolm Hansen Review They Come in All Colors 2019 First Novelist Award from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association Malcolm Hansen arrives on the scene as a bold new literary voice with his stunning debut novel Alternating between the Deep South and New York City during the 1960s and early '70s They Come in All Colors follows a biracial teenage boy who finds his new life in the big city disrupted by childhood memories of the summer when racial tensions in his hometown reached a tipping pointIt's 1968 when fourteen year old Huey Fairchild begins high sch. This book was incredibly and masterfully written For a debut this definitely makes Malcolm Hansen an author to watch The story is narrated by Huey in flashbacks as an 8 year old boy and as a 12 year old at a prestigious school Huey s narration has an amazing ability to drop the reader right into the story The reader presumably has at least a rudimentary knowledge about the civil unrest in the deep south in the early 1960s Huey however does not He s just a child trying to live his life and have a fun summer Because the story is told entirely through his innocent eyes the reader has a uniue participatory opportunity to interpret the events Huey sees and pull greater meaning from them than even the characters can For this reason the book can read on many different levels simultaneously and makes Huey s story dependent on the reader for full context I have never read a novel like this before and I deeply admire the writing craft of this book The story itself is a difficult one to read because it isn t cheerful by any means There is a lot of depth and darkness to Huey s story but it s extremely powerful important and relevant to modern times I sincerely hope They Come in All Colors will be widely read and discussed
