The Fifth Season


The fifth season

Back in August I read N.K.Jemisin’s newest novel, The Fifth Season.


Shall I count the reason’s why? Don’t count on it. I can’t. This novel is dense and chewy with complex layers and I’m still too busy fan-girling to be coherent. I went back to look at my Goodreads review of the book and realized that I said little about it. I still find it difficult to put into writing exactly how I feel about this book as both a reader and a writer. Fortunately I don’t have to.

A few weeks ago Jonah Sutton-Morse, host of the Cabbages and Kings Podcast, Troy Wiggins, and I sat down for quite a lengthy and delicious discussion of the book.

Some spoilers and gushing ahead. Take a listen if you dare.
