Sophie & Chaya Bibliochat: ‘Transcendent Kingdom’ by Yaa Gyasi


Spoiler free review of our March book pick which certainly didn’t disappoint. This was nothing short of magnificent. There may be diverging opinions but we both were blown away and fully understand the heaps of praise, including its position on the @womensprize long list. The depths this short book reaches is astounding. Themes of religion, science, addiction, race, identity and family are deftly explored – in truth this video could have been a good three hours long. Thank you so much to @feelingmyshelf_ and @vikingbooksuk for our treasured copy.
