The Secret Lives of Church Ladies, by Deesha Philyaw

Staff Pick

I cannot stop gushing about this short story collection—it’s phenomenal, and I would easily re-read it again tomorrow. These stories explore Blackness, faith, and sexuality in a way that doesn't make it seem like any of these topics is taken lightly or used as a plot device, but rather are urgent matters that the women in the stories are exploring. I want to befriend all these characters.
