REAL LIFE by Brandon Taylor – a beautiful study of micro aggression’s

Brandon Taylor’s Real life is an unusually written beautiful debut novel which is breaking a very long tradition of campus novels and giving such a fresh and nuanced look.

This extraordinary debut follows Wallace, a biochemistry student in post grad university during one weekend and how he grapples with trauma of his past and possible future.

It is written beautifully from first sentence to the last. What is loved the most was the deep study of micro aggression’s in a young black queer man. This book is so nuanced and emotionally powerful dealing with someone serious issues like race, class, homophobia. Brandon Taylor is truly a writer to watch.
