Your House Will Pay by Steph Cha
Steph Cha delivers a subtle and morally complex work of fiction based on the 1991 murder of a 15 year old black girl by a Korean store owner in Los Angeles, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and served no jail time.
Most of the events in the novel take place between June and September 2019 and it sadly feels as though Cha is writing narrative non-fiction in real time. Mild spoiler alert: a riot breaking out in September 2019 feels more likely to happen than not. Cha is a quiet writer, so good at her craft that you might not even notice how good at times. An impressive work of fiction that courageously takes on race relations in America today.
