Angela Flournoy is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she received a Dean’s Fellowship, and the University of Southern California. She has taught writing at the University of Iowa and Trinity Washington University and has worked for the Washington, D.C. Public Library. She was raised in Southern California by a mother from Los Angeles and a father from Detroit. Flournoy’s highly-anticipated debut tells the story of the Turners of Detroit’s Yarrow Street, a home with more than fifty years of family history, including thirteen children grown and gone—and some returned, the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit’s East Side, and the loss of a father.
