De’Shawn Charles Winslow, the award-winning author of In West Mills, joins us to talk about his new novel Decent People. Set in the same fictional small town in North Carolina, Decent People is a murder mystery, a family saga, and a nuanced examination of race and class.
“De'Shawn Charles Winslow's powerful second novel Decent People is a gripping mystery but also something more. A thoughtful examination of small-town life becomes a story about America itself, looking directly at the legacies of racism and segregation, homophobia and secrecy, poverty and power.” ―Rumaan Alam, author of Leave the World Behind
