The Through by A. Raphael Johnson
The Through by A. Raphael Johnson

Faculty member A. Raphael Johnson will be reading his book award finalist novel tonight at Moon Palace Books.

In The Through, Adrian and her partner Ben navigate the strange and dangerous magic of Okahika, a black ghost town that exists somewhere between Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and the other-world of flying slave ships and mothers back from the dead. This narrative interrogates blackness in the New South, including the ways in which it is haunted and revisited by the old. It also engages with love and trauma, exploring how we keep ourselves hidden and allow ourselves to know each other in our most intimate relationships.
