A provocative collection of narrative essays with a unique point of view.

A first-generation American New Yorker, Aisha Redux uses her bold voice and unique point of view in this provocative collection. Weaving between the worlds of contemporary Black urban culture, traditional African religion and plant-based medicine, and modern tenets of Islam, she shares her life experiences, powerful observations, and evolving belief system through the lens of race, culture, gender, sexuality and spirituality. Exploring topics ranging from night terrors to schizophrenia, to gentrification, to the author’s personal September 11th story. With stunning artwork created by Brianna McCarthy in response to each of the essays.
