Special Book: Moon Honey, Suzette Mayr

When did you first read this book: 1998

 

Describe why this book is important to you?

Reading Moon Honey I experienced, for the first time in my reading life, the shock and pleasure of having my own specific experience as a mixed-race woman in Canada represented back to me. But this is no tragic mulatto narrative; Mayr represents the experience with an abundance of humour, wit, and insight.
