I’ve been following and reading Anna Vangala Jones’ stories for a while now through her published works in literary journals. Always impressed with the depth and range and emotions evoked through her writing. Turmeric & Sugar, published by Thirty West, is an incredible collection of her stories, and I highly recommend it. “Echo” is my favorite story in the collection, and it’s a piece that is beautiful, haunting, and poetically triumphant. Also, the cover design by Carolyn Brandt is gorgeous. Get this book on your shelf!
