Show Notes

On this episode of Black & Published, Nikesha speaks with Maisy Card, author of the novel, These Ghosts Are Family which won an American Book Award, the  2021 OCM Bocas Prize in fiction and was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award for Debut Novel, among others.  Maisy's writing has appeared in The Paris Review Daily,  The New York Times, and other publications. She was born in Portmore, Jamaica but was raised in Queens, NY. 

In our conversation, Maisy discusses the difference between the fun and work of writing, telling a family story to say all the things she couldn't say to her own family, and the spooky parallels she noticed between the ghost story she created and her own real life.
