Deni Ellis Béchard’s White is a riveting novel that explores whiteness, modern humanitarianism, and the lies of American exceptionalism and white supremacy.
Assigned to write an exposé on Richmond Hew, the conservation world’s most elusive and corrupt humanitarian worker, an intrepid journalist finds himself on a plane to the Democratic Republic of the Congo – a country he thinks he understands. But when he meets Sola, a woman searching for a rootless white orphan who believes herself possessed by a skin-stealing demon, he slowly uncovers a tapestry of corruption and racial tensions generations in the making.
Foreward Reviews writes of White that it is “a tale that feels like James Michener and Gabriel García Márquez joined forces to craft a meditation on race … captivating, careening, thrilling, and magical, this is intelligent entertainment.”
