Truth in Fiction: Navigating History
Danzy Senna's debut novel, Caucasia, was the LA Times Book of The Year and became an instant national bestseller. Her second novel Symptomatic was published in 2003, and her latest work is the memoir: Where Did You Sleep Last Night? A Personal History, in which she reconstructs a long-buried family mystery that illuminates her own childhood, her enigmatic father, and the power and failure of her parents' interracial union.
