Mocha Confidential by Billy McCoy is a spellbinding generational saga that will sweep readers away—Leah's secret romance threatens to unravel her family. Leah finds herself cautiously navigating racial fault lines, but when her lover's comfortable life is suddenly disrupted, she can't cope and long festering grievances that have been simmering come to a boil.
Mocha Confidential captures the fractious dynamics of Jewish Leah and black Chris with precision and energy. The prose is both lyrical and piercing, yet remarkably human.
