Book Review: Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson

Check out Black Cake

Expansive and tender, Black Cake is perfect for book clubs. A page-turner written mostly in vignettes that flit from past to present, person to person, it also allows moments for quiet contemplation.

It’s an exploration of the intermixing of cultures, the cause and effect of human weakness, secrets, and the choices we make in an effort to survive and, maybe no less important, the effort to belong.

So much is in this book – from the intricacies of family relationships, to generational trauma, racial politics, sexuality, and the importance of protecting the environment –  and like a recipe, all these little additions combine to make a delicious whole.

I loved it!
