A Novel

“Vern is fleeing an abusive cult that targets Black people. As their body mutates into something entirely new, Vern must face the past before they can move towards their future. This book is many things: an adult fairytale, a Southern gothic horror, a thriller that twists and turns. A testament to forging pain into strength, this book is unlike anything else you’ve read.”

By Sally Rooney

Milk Blood Heat

Stories

By Dantiel W. Moniz
Narrated by: Machelle Williams
Length: 5 hours 31 minutes

If you enjoyed Sabrina & Corina, then you’ll love Milk Blood Heat.

“Hands down the best short story collection I've read to date. Not a dud in the bunch. Each story glows 10/10 on its own merit, yet paradoxically, each is that much greater when paired with its peers. If you want to know what it's like to read a miracle, pick up Dantiel W. Moniz's debut (that's right... A DEBUT!!!!!!) Milk, Blood, Heat. It's a book you'll slow down the audio when you listen to it to savor every last rich, syrupy drop.”
