Here are a couple of books that I would recommend, all of which have been published in the last 5 years:
Blackass by A. Igoni Barrett - The story begins when Furo Wariboko, a young Nigerian man living in Lagos, wakes up in the morning to go to a job interview. After waking up, he discovers that he's turned into a white man with pale skin, red hair and green eyes. The only remnant of his former self is his black ass. The novel explores what it's like for a black man to gain white privilege in the biggest city in Africa.
A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James - It's a story of post-colonial Jamaica told over several decades and by a dozen narrators. The story looks at gang warfare, the political corruption in Jamaica that was present from the moment it gained independence, the attempted assassination of Bob Marley before the Smile Jamaica Concert on December 5, 1976, and its aftermath, which includes a foray into the crack wars of New York City in the 1980's. The novel won several awards including the 2015 Man Booker Prize. I highly recommend it. Although, you should be warned that it's really violent. It can feel at times like James is to writing what Tarantino is to film.
I should also note that his latest novel, Black Leopard, Red Wolf, is on my list of books I intend to read this summer. It has been said that it is the first book in a planned trilogy of an epic fantasy quest full of monsters, sex and violence, set in a mythic version of ancient Africa. It has also been characterized by Lucy Feldman, the Books Editor of TIME Magazine, as "an African Game of Thrones."
Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams - The story of Queenie Jenkins, a 25-year-old Jamaican Brit living in London who is having the worst year of her life. The story explores interracial relationships, what it is like to be viewed as nothing more than a sex object, what it is like to be the token black person at the office, and what it is like to come from a troubled home and how the suppressed trauma from that history can come back to haunt you as an adult.
Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid - I have not yet read this book, but it's on my short list for books I intend to read over the summer. If I had it my way, I'd be reading it right now, but all the copies at the library are out and there were over 30 holds placed on it before I put mine in. It's the story of a young African-American woman who is accused of kidnapping the 3-year old white girl that she is babysitting, and the events that follow it. The book is supposed to delve into the themes of interracial relations, privilege, wealth, and millennial anxieties. It has also been described as "a satire of the white pursuit of wokeness." It has receive a heaping amount of praise in the press. I was convinced it would be a good read after I saw Reid interviewed by Trevor Noah a few months ago.
