Transcendent Kingdom – Yaa Gyasi

10/10 would recommend. Transcendent Kingdom is a monumental work of fiction that speaks to contemporary questions and issues. Yaa Gyasi tells a story of a motivated female scientist who overcomes a difficult past to make important discoveries in the laboratory and within herself. This book addresses inequality, prejudice, grief, mother-daughter relationships, suicide, neuroscience, religion, opiate addiction, seeking answers, and accepting incomplete answers.
Only a writer of Gyasi’s caliber can navigate so many topics without becoming muddled, providing perspective and provoking thought in each area.
Transcendent Kingdom deserves all the hype.

I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
