The Trees by Percival Everett is a novel that takes on the history of lynching in the United States of America through the lenses of minority police officers and stereotypical White do-gooders with a healthy dose of satire aimed at the worst leaders that the country has ever had.

Everett writes with perfect pacing and surfaces many uncomfortable truths with superb dialogue. This is a book that every American should read. Or at least those who can read.


Rating: 7/7
