Sinopsis: In 1950, Ruby makes her escape to New York, “where Colored girls and White pretended to be equal”, to look for her mother. And while she wears Chanel perfume, loses a bit of her east Texas accent, and receives a conspiratorial wink from James Baldwin, the big city is almost as cruel to her as the small town had been. A telegram calls her home in 1963, right as hundreds are flocking north to the March on Washington. “Like a lone salmon Ruby had taken the road south,” which is where we find her when the novel begins, living on her family’s land and talking to invisible spirits. She has completely unraveled. Many will compare Ruby to the work of Toni Morrison or Zora Neale Hurston, as Oprah Winfrey has. (She’s chosen it as the fourth selection in her Book Club 2.0.) Ruby’s scenes of satanism and sexual abuse also evoke HBO’s True Detective, which is set in nearby Louisiana and has quite a few details in common with a true story. A few plot points might be similar, but Bond recounts the events from the perspective of a survivor who relives them every day, not an outside investigator cushioned by time and distance. The effect is profoundly different.
