Loving Day

Mixed. Readers who enjoy fine writing and social satire are those most likely to enjoy reading Mat Johnson’s novel titled, Loving Day. Protagonist Warren Duffy is the emerging twenty-first century American Everyman. Warren is the child of a black woman and an Irish-American white man. After he returns to Philadelphia from Wales where his marriage failed, he discovers that he fathered a daughter who has been raised Jewish. Living in the rundown house he inherited from his late father, Warren sees ghosts and struggles to survive. I found myself laughing and thinking as Johnson guided me through the themes of this novel: identity, race, and family. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Loving Day from amazon.com.
