David Mitchell, We Hold These Truths ($19.99, Paperback, Project Z Books, 9780692720134)
David Mitchell is one of those people you meet and know, without a doubt, he is going to conquer anything he wants to and aren’t we lucky that he wants to take on the literary world. His debut novel, We Hold These Truths, features a motivated, focused recent law graduate, who is black, who joins a long-shot senate campaign in North Carolina shortly after Barack Obama’s 2008 victory and experiences the painful mutations of supposedly “post-racial” politics. This engaging, thoughtful work highlights the promise of Mitchell’s talent and hopefully we won’t have to wait long, as he’s at work on his second novel.
