Danzy Senna

Danzy Senna has said, “I like stories that frighten me, that take me to a place that I’m uncomfortable with, but that leave me with some greater understanding of human nature.” Her recent story collection, You Are Free, is described by NPR as “a mixed race take on what it means to be ‘free’.” Senna is the author of the novels Caucasia and Symptomatic and the memoir, Where Did You Sleep Last Night?: A Personal History, a portrait of her parents’ inter-racial marriage and bitter divorce in 1970s racially charged Boston.
